UA System tightens online-degree rules - Aziza Musa, Arkansas Online

Colleges and universities in the University of Arkansas System will face more scrutiny when proposing new degree programs that are fully online. Now, chancellors who want to add an online-degree program that already exists within the UA System must explain why another distance-education offering is needed. The justification is just for degree programs -- not courses -- that are completely online. "I didn't draw a line in the sand and say, 'No never,'" UA System President Donald Bobbitt said. "But, I will tell you that the scrutiny on a proposed program is going to be intense." http://www.arkansasonline.com/news/2016/sep/25/ua-system-tightens-online-degree-rules-/
