Page 132, after line 19 insert:
"H.   Any private, nonprofit institution of higher education formed, chartered, or established outside of the Commonwealth that has been approved to offer ten (10) or more masters and doctoral degrees, has two thousand (2,000) or more students enrolled in such degree programs, and offers such degree programs in at least three (3) approved sites within the Commonwealth, shall be considered by the Council of Higher Education to be a Virginia private college when fulfilling its responsibilities under Section 23-9.6:1 (13), Section 23-9.10:2 (a), and Section 23-9.10:3 of the Code of Virginia.  Such consideration shall not be construed to make an institution of higher education meeting the above criteria eligible for the Tuition Assistance Grant Program (Section 23-38.11 et seq.), the Virginia College Building Authority (Section 23-30.23 et seq.), the College Scholarship Assistance Program (Section 23-28.45 et seq.), or the Eminent Scholars Program (1996 Acts of Assembly, Chapter 912, Item 161 (B))."

(This amendment would provide legislative support to the existing policies of the State Council of Higher Education permitting private, nonprofit institutions of higher education which are incorporated or established under the laws of a state other than Virginia, but that have been approved by SCHEV to grant degrees in Virginia, to participate in certain programs administered by SCHEV for private, nonprofit institutions.)
