I'm an adult returning to school and needed this iPad calendar to give me the recurring appts. I think I may have found the way to do this. I added a bunch of appts to test it. Add new event, type in the start date and make the end date the same as the start date, selecte the repeat option (every week, every two weeks, etc), type in the end repeat date (when you actually want it to end), select your alert and calendar. Please let me know if you try and are successful.
