Where an institution is seeking to offer a distance education program, where that program has not been previously approved, a full program proposal is required that addresses all program review criteria that Code of Maryland Regulations (COMAR) 13B.02.03.06 outlines. Additionally, the proposal should directly and explicitly address the State’s Principles of Good Practice for Distance Education as outlined in COMAR 13B.02.03.22C. To ensure institutions explicitly and directly address these principles, it is recommended that a program proposal include an appendix that details how they address the Principles.
Where an institution is proposing to make available an existing program as a distance education option a distance education program shall be submitted by the institution to the Commission before implementation and shall contain the following information:
