With partner such as Lewis-Clark State College 4-6 year process for McCall College accreditation Regional accreditation comes with partnership Offering their degrees and transcript No partner (proprietary college) Individual program development 4-6 years for national accreditation (no transfer) 6-10 years for regional accreditation (transfer) 23

24 SI I: Build an Effective College Organization SI II: Identify & Meet Community Educational Needs. What other programs would be helpful? SI III: Develop and Effective Infrastructure of Campus Buildings Goal A. Outcome #1: Use furniture and equipment in each classroom that is equivalent to the HS experience Goal A.

25 SI III.Goal E: Develop a publically funded Professional Technical School to serve Valley County and the region SI IV: Develop outstanding Students SI V: Develop outstanding Faculty and Staff SI VI: Insure Institutional effectiveness 25

26 The Foundation has arranged for 5 – 7,000 sq. ft. of space & utilities in the Park Center Professional Center on Park Street to house Administrative Offices, Academic & Student Center, Bookstore, 4 Classrooms 1 Technology Center. The owner is willing to wait for students before billing for space. 26

27 We are striving to develop a college that remains affordable We are targeting a tuition in the range of $250.00 per credit equivalent. Most classes are 3 credit equivalent classes. We are currently all volunteers. We have access to college equipment contracts to equip college at wholesale costs A Lili grant (through local library) makes EBSCOhost available to Idaho free of charge (leading collegiate search engine/ online library). Our current expenses are the permits, fees, development costs (marketing, office supplies, advertising, engineering), and insurance required for start-up 27

28 Staff jobs: Minimum 7 full time staff and management Teaching jobs: Minimum of 64/3=21 classes per program 5 programs means over 100 teaching assignments. We believe that most of these can be filled by regional residents Fill under-utilized office space & seasonal housing during Sept. - May Economic impact of over $3.2 mil / year 28
