(used for special topics courses and certain other courses related to each other)
Goal – Each topic has a unique number, title, and description at the Catalog level, so that a distinct record is created, allowing it to have all the attributes and capabilities of a "course." While all special topics courses will use the expanded numbering system, not all courses with expanded numbers are special topics courses.
System – Each topic has a two-digit "root" number followed by a "point," then a two-digit extension following the point. For example, 40.01, 40.02, 40.03, where "40" is the root course, and "01," "02," and "03" are extensions. The root, point, and extension form a single, unique, course number. Every time the topic is offered the same number is used (it does not vary term to term), and it is listed in the ORC and Timetable of Courses with that number.
