18A:64A-2. Petition to establish a college
18A:64A-2. When the board of chosen freeholders of one or more counties, after study and investigation, shall deem it advisable for such county or counties to establish a county college, such board or boards of county freeholders may petition the Commission on Higher Education for permission to establish and operate a county college. A report shall be attached to such petition and shall include information on the higher educational needs of the county or counties, a description of the proposed county college, the proposed curriculum, an estimate of the cost of establishing and maintaining such county college, and any other information or data deemed pertinent.
The commission shall determine whether there is a need for such college and whether the county or counties have the financial capacity to support such college. If the commission finds such a need to exist and further finds that establishing and maintaining such college is financially feasible, it shall approve the petition and shall so notify the board or boards of chosen freeholders.
