Page 184 after line 55 insert:
"O.  Effective upon passage of this act, TELETECHNET services shall not be extended from current locations in the Commonwealth without the formal approval of the State Council of Higher Education."

(This amendment requires Old Dominion University to seek the approval of the State Council of Higher Education prior to extending TELETECHNET services in the Commonwealth. Through TELETECHNET, students may receive the third and fourth years of their college education by taking televised courses that originate at ODU and are transmitted to a community college. A companion amendment gives the State Council the authority to approve the provision of TELETECHNET courses.)
