RE: SPECIAL TOPICS
Some inconsistencies were discovered in the current catalog regarding Special Topic courses. The last digit of a Special Topic course number should equal the number of credit hours of the course. In some cases, in several departments, the last number does not reflect the correct number of hours. In an attempt to correct the upcoming catalog, I would like to request the following changes so that the course number and credit hours are consistent with the Georgia Tech Course Numbering System.
Thank you for your consideration.
