8VAC40-160-40. Eligible institution governing board responsibilities.

An eligible institution governing board shall conduct the following activities as part of its responsibilities:

1. Determine a list of noncredit workforce training programs and workforce credentials considering alignment with the board's list of high-demand fields. The list shall be approved by June 1 of each year and shall be submitted within 15 calendar days to the board and the council. If additional noncredit workforce training programs are identified during the program year, the eligible institution must notify the board within 15 days.

2. Adopt a policy for the award of academic credit to any eligible student who has earned a noncredit workforce credential that is applicable to the student's certificate or degree program requirements. If the eligible institution is a higher education center and does not award academic credit, then the policy should identify how the institution shall develop an agreement with at least one institution to articulate the workforce credential aligned with the noncredit training program for academic credit. If the institution is unable to develop an agreement, then it may request assistance from the council.
