Offsite Location Approval Process

Before an existing UT program can be offered at an offsite location, approval must be granted at various levels.   The proponent for the offsite location must go through a College offsite approval process first (Step 1 below), and then through an offsite approval process supported by the Office of the Provost (Step 2 and, if applicable, Step 3 below).

This approval process includes foreign programs where a UT degree is ultimately granted.

Any new UT programs must also be approved by Faculty Senate or Graduate Council before they can be offered at UT or Offsite.  

STEP 1:
Complete the College Approval of Offsite Location Form

Required signatures include: 

  • department chair
  • dean
  • associate VP for academic finance
  • provost
  • Electronic submissions will go to the Office of Assessment, Accreditation, and Program Review which will notify the Office of the Provost.

If needed, complete UT Offsite Location Application for External Approval (Word version)

Information will be shared with:
•Office of Off-Campus and Extended Programs (if applicable)
•Center for International Studies and Programs (if applicable)
STEP 3:
State and HLC Approvals
  • Office of Assessment, Accreditation, and Program Review will submit for external approval (i.e. State, HLC), if applicable.
