Under s.38.50 (1)(e) 2., Wis. Stats., “[s]chools that are supported mainly by taxes” are exempt from EAB oversight. Because the exemption is not restricted to public institutions governed by the state of Wisconsin, the EAB has consistently interpreted it to mean any public college or university that is an instrumentality of a state is exempt. Because USG campuses are public institutions governed by the state of Georgia, they are deemed to be exempt from EAB oversight. However, should any of the campuses offer programs in a regulated profession, such as nursing or teacher training, you are advised to contact those respective oversight bodies (e.g., the Department of Regulation and Licensing or the Department of Public Instruction) about requirements specific to those program.
