Course Titles

Every course has two, governance approved titles: 
1.  a long title which has a limit of 100 characters, this is the title that is used in Course Guide, Guide, Canvas and other campus systems and publications where space is not an issue.
2. transcript title with a 30 character limit, this is the course title that appears on the student transcript and in campus publication and systems where space is limited.

Course titles may only be changed with the approval of governance via a course change proposal.

Common Course Titles  
There is an expectation that course titles will be unique except in a limited number exceptions would include independent/directed study and other similar courses where the title simply describes the basic activity of the course.

Topics Courses  
Some courses have been approved to be offered as topics courses.  These courses will have an additional title called the topic title.
This title has a 30 character limit.  The expectation is that a course will be offered under any given topic title a maximum of 3 times.  If it needs to be offered more it should be proposed as a stand alone course.
