Before drafting an agreement, consider the following priorities:
- The partnership aligns with university goals and resources
- The appropriate leadership is in agreement with the terms (e.g., Department Head, Dean)
- All financial aspects have been vetted (scholarships, tuition, fees)
- Admissions requirements and process have been established
The Office of General Counsel has reviewed standard agreement types and has advised us regarding necessary general provision language each contract should contain. It is required that you use the following templates in lieu of drafting your own agreement or using the partner school’s template.
Below are descriptions of the five types of agreements, the contact information for that agreement, and/or a downloadable version of the template. Some of the templates are not available for download.
