Brick and Mortar are 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.
Global Academy lays out clear, well-defined protocols that must be undertaken to provide legal
protection, ethical dominance, and CHEA quality standards. These are 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. Operating Authorizations
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 an adequate and sufficient budget in place before undertaking the development of an online or blended university

K-12, college, or even corporate training organization may find it extremely advantageous to maintain a physical presence
and a "place" of business for the school. Tradition demands it.
organizations, academics and individuals contemplating establishing both an on-ground and online school, a primary consideration
should be funding availability and the initial licensing required.
