Rules and Standards for Licensing Non-Public Educational Institutions fo Confer Degrees.
North Carolina Univ., Chapel Hill.
This document prescribes the rules and minimum standards under which the Board of Governors of the University of North Carolina issues licenses to nonpublic educational institutions to confer degrees in North Carolina. The rules and standards are to a significant degree based on the legislative model proposed by the Education Commission of the States. The new regulations provide definitions of "degree" and related terms. The lack of definitions in the past gave opportunity for the existence of diploma mills and other operations of questionable educational legitimacy. The Board of Governors also specifies procedures for renewing degree granting licensure as well as obtaining an original license. The renewal procedure provides a mechanism for determining that institutions are maintaining minimum standards of academic and institutional responsibility. Section 1 of this document cites the authorization for establishment of the rules and standards. Section 2 states their purpose. Section 3 consists of the minimum standards themselves. Section 4 provides for accreditation as evidence of compliance with minimum standards. Section 5 and 6 provide for regular licensure and provisional licensure. Section 7 outlines the procedures for implementation. Section 8 provides for enforcement and section 9 defines terms used. Appendixes A and B follow the text. (Author/KE)
