Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2013 - 2014 Regular Session

MEMORANDUM

Posted: November 13, 2013 12:48 PM
From: Senator Mike Folmer
To: All Senate members
Subject: College to University Designation
 
Pennsylvania colleges are required under the School Code to apply to the Pennsylvania Department of Education while meeting certain criteria in order to become a “university.” This process is long, financially burdensome, and often requires the college to seek an exception in order to qualify.

I plan to introduce legislation that would simplify the process that a “college” must follow in order to become a “university.” This legislation was developed in cooperation with a number of existing colleges and universities and the Association of Independent Colleges and Universities of Pennsylvania.

Thank you.



Introduced as SB1205
