    Policy Statement
    Pursuant to the policies of the University System of Georgia, The University of Georgia shall prepare an operating budget for educational and general activities and an operating budget for auxiliary enterprises for the institution for each fiscal year within the limit of funds allocated plus estimated internal income of the institution.
    Reason for policy
    The University of Georgia budget is designed as a comprehensive fiscal plan for implementing its mission as a land-grant and sea-grant University with statewide commitments and responsibilities, as the State's oldest, most comprehensive, and most diversified institution of higher education. Our motto, "to teach, to serve, and to inquire into the nature of things," reflects the University's integral and unique role in the conservation and enhancement of the state's and Nation's intellectual, cultural, and environmental heritage.  The implied values of the budget as a comprehensive fiscal plan for the institution include accountability, efficiency and efficacy.

Distance learning courses and programs are defined as those courses and programs in which 95% or more of class contact time is delivered by a distance technology.  Special tuition rates may also be charged as part of agreements with customers, defined as corporations, organizations, agencies, or other legal entities, for the delivery of credit courses and programs.
