External Education

External Education is defined to include any credit-bearing course or program of which more than 50% is delivered primarily at locations other than the Athens campus. It is defined by the Board of Regents as face-to-face instruction and interaction between instructor and student when both are located in an environment external to the Athens campus, including established external education campuses.

The definition of external education does not include non-credit-bearing courses, including continuing education courses under the auspices of the Vice President for Public Service and Outreach.

To submit a request, please follow the steps below:
  • You will need to upload your External Education Proposal Form request to:  SUBMIT A REQUEST.
  • External Education proposals will need to be reviewed and approved by the Faculty Senate.  A representative from your department will need to be present at this meeting to discuss the proposal as well as answer any questions or concerns that might arise.
  • Once your request has been approved by both the Franklin College Curriculum Committee and the Faculty Senate, the request will be emailed to the Office of Curriculum Systems and to the Department Head.
