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.
your organization is considering starting a school, college or university that is fully functional in every
way, 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
In addition, Global Academy Online lays out clear,
well defined protocols that must be undertaken to provide legal protection, ethical dominance, and CHEA quality standards
education milestones in order to achieve accredited recognition from faculty, students, and national and international
education academic communities.

Virtual schools 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
Authorizations and Licensing
Under Global Academy's guidance, an authorized and licensed school
may conduct online classes worldwide via the Internet and be 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 may obtain 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.
Operating authorizations in some jurisdictions can take up to five years as in California and depending
on the authority may never see the light of day. Global Academy Online 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. Further,
applicants seeking to operate a registered and authorized university, in particular, should be prepared to have a
sufficient budget in place before undertaking any online or blended university development.
