Brick and Mortar NOT Required
An online university or college startup does not require brick and
mortar buildings. What it does require is everything else. Shedding buildings does not mean shedding rigor,
quality, or the content delivery one would receive inside a live classroom.
If your organization is considering starting a school, college or university
that is fully functional in every way, the Global Academy (Online) can build it. Through direct US local,
state, and international government contacts, Global Academy obtains university authorizations, licensing to hold classes
and the ability to supply educational services, issue degrees, diplomas, and certificates with qualified seasoned faculty
and administration and complete online learner and school management systems.
In addition, Global Academy lays out clear, well-defined protocols that must be undertaken
to provide legal protection, ethical dominance, and CHEA quality standards as education milestones in order to achieve accredited
recognition from national and international education academic communities.
Authorizations and Licensing
Under Global Academy guidance, an authorized
and licensed school may conduct online and ground -based classes able to enroll students from every continent.
Such a school may open as many branches as desired to fulfill their mission. Actual licenses may be obtained both
in the USA and offshore and held by a registered corporation either domestic or foreign.
Registering an International Organization
Global Academy obtains for organizers important legal and tax advantages.
However, there are also drawbacks of distance and control. The positives include keeping all income from the university
tax free from foreign, non resident jurisdictions. It would protect directors from errors or omissions that may be committed
by university administrators and may be more attractive to international students who would not be quite so critical
of a start up higher education provider.
Some jurisdictions can take up to five
years as is the case in California and depending on the authority may never see the light of day. Global Academy
fees are fixed no matter how long it takes right up to the point of submission for national accreditation. After submission
to the highest authority in the USA, additional service fees are negotiated and depend on the complexity and experience of
the applicant organization and individuals contributing to the success of the institution being created. Further, applicants
seeking to operate a registered and authorized university, in particular, should be prepared to have and adequate and
sufficient budget in place before undertaking the development of an online or blended university development.

do not require a hard site but organizations determined to begin an online virtual entity, whether a
K-12, college, or even corporate training organization, find it extremely advantageous to maintain a physical presence and
a "place" of business for the school. Tradition demands it.For organizations, academics and individuals contemplating
establishing both an on-ground and online school, a primary consideration should be funding availability and the initial
