18A:3B-65 Plan for branch campus.
20. a. When the governing board of a public research university or a State college, after study and investigation, determines that it is advisable for the institution to establish a branch campus out-of-State or out-of-country that will serve at least 500 students of the institution, the board shall submit the plan for the branch campus to the commission for its review and recommendations. The plan shall include: a description of the higher educational needs of the country or region in which the branch campus shall be located; a description of the proposed branch campus and its proposed programs and curriculum; and an estimate of the cost of establishing and maintaining the branch campus including the cost of any planned acquisition or construction of facilities; and any other information or data deemed necessary by the commission.
