- University of Georgia Bulletin
4.08-2 Student Recruitment§
The University of Georgia is responsible through good practice and through accreditation standards and policies to provide all potential students with accurate, current, accessible information about the University’s programs, policies, and services so that they can make informed decisions about applying to and enrolling at the University.
In addition, UGA participates in the Voluntary Education Institutional Compliance Program with the U.S. Department of Defense. The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for participating in this program enhances the protection of Service members and their families through requirements that provide meaningful information about the financial cost and quality of the school, prevent abusive and deceptive recruiting practices, and provide high-quality academic and student support services. Because UGA participates in this MOU, active duty Service members are able to use Title IV funding to enroll and participate in UGA academic programs.
This policy addresses UGA’s responsibility in recruiting all students and specifically addresses regulations mandated in the DoD Voluntary Education Partnership MOU.
