How To Start Your Own University or College
I get a lot of inquiries from individuals who want to open a degree granting school and who usually want to offer their programs online. The majority of these inquiries are from people who seem to believe that all you have to do is hang your shingle out there and the people will flock to study with you. I have been responsible for several applications to operate degree granting institutions, all of which resulted in approval because I am very careful who I agree to work with. That having been said, I believe the best way to realize such a project is to write a thorough business plan. A well written business plan for a college will incorporate many of the items that are required for a successful application. All State Approval Agencies from New York to California expect to see that an organization has a well thought out and researched strategic plan for the launching of a university or college before it is willing to grant an approval. Each State’s Department of Education is responsible for student protection as well as a quality assurance. They don’t issue approvals without serious scrutiny.
