The Jacobi-Trudi identity expresses a skew Schur function as a determinant of complete symmetric functions. Bressoud and Wei extend this idea, introducing an integer parameter $t\geq-1$ and showing that signed sums of skew Schur functions of a certain shape are expressible once again as a determinant of complete symmetric functions. Koike provides a Jacobi-Trudi-style definition of universal rational characters of the general linear group and gives their expansion as a signed sum of products of Schur functions in two distinct sets of variables. Here we extend Bressoud and Wei's formula by including an additional parameter and extending the result to the case of all integer $t$. Then we introduce this parameter idea to the Koike formula, extending it in the same way. We prove our results algebraically using Laplace determinantal expansions.
