Board of Regents Policy Manual

Official Policies of the University System of Georgia

9.3 Facilities Approval for Off-Campus Instructional Sites

To provide instruction at an off-campus site, University System of Georgia (USG) institutions must first seek approval of the proposed academic instruction or program in accordance with the Board of Regents’ Policy on Academic Approval for Off-Campus Instructional Sites. Institutions shall not initiate requests for new off-campus instructional facilities prior to the approval of related academic proposals unless authorized by the Chief Academic Officer to proceed with a facility proposal concurrently with the academic review process.

Off-campus instructional facilities that are proposed to be controlled and exclusively occupied by the institution must be approved in accordance with the Board of Regents’ policies on Facilities. Where applicable, facility proposals must be submitted for Integrated Review in accordance with the requirements of Board Policy.

Space occupied non-exclusively (typically classrooms or meeting rooms for specific, limited periods at a nominal cost) may be used for scheduling approved instruction at other USG institutions and at sites controlled by outside entities (e.g., secondary schools, private universities, hospitals, local government facilities, corporate sites, military bases) without facilities approval.
