Students are referred to university partners who offer the programs of interest. To ensure that universities work collaboratively in marketing, recruitment and operating programs, we will make every effort to avoid overlap in programs offered by university partners and ensure that programs serve mutually exclusive target populations. Operating the programs, including hiring of faculty, counseling students, overseeing curricula and registering students, is the responsibility of each university partner exclusively.
