Community College system. This inventory is in its Sixth Edition. The

site at http://www.cccco.edu/Portals/4/TopTax6_rev0909.pdf
- T.O.P. Title (red). This is the standard name
associated with the T.O.P. code.
- Local Title (green). This is the local program
title, which may be more specific than T.O.P. title.

units and restricted electives required for a certificate. Expressed
as semester units for all colleges except DeAnza,
Foothill, and Lake Tahoe, whose listings are in quarter units.
