Rollback: Please confirm that course is repeatable for credit. This is usually true of 'topics' courses where topics vary by semester, and students may repeat the course only if the topic differs. If it's not repeatable, please uncheck box and resubmit. If it is, we should consider changing title to "Topics in IT...." and I will add the usual topics course language.
