An institution proposing a doctoral program for distance delivery must have approval to offer the program on its own campus. (If it does not, a substantive program proposal needs to be submitted.) The program must be in good standing with all appropriate review and accreditation organizations. It must have sufficient numbers of students in its on-campus program to permit its successful continuation. It must be submitted through the appropriate institutional and system administrative channels.
Universities and health related institutions must inform the A&M System (Office of Academic Affairs) and the THECB when four or more courses that support a doctoral program are being offered through distance education and/or off-campus. The notification should include whether or not the institution intends to eventually offer the program via distance education and/or off-campus.
