USV Teach-Out Policy

We honor our commitments

In the event that University of Silicon Valley determines that a program is no longer viable, once it has begun, no new students will be admitted and all current students will be notified. If the program closes, the College will honor its commitment to students and a teach‐out plan for juniors, seniors, and/or graduate students will be implemented. Freshmen and Sophomore students will be encouraged to transfer to institutions offering a similar degree. A list of those institutions will be provided along with admissions requirements and deadlines.

It is anticipated that a teach‐out would take a minimum of two years to complete for an undergraduate program and six months to complete for a graduate program due to the length of those programs. If students elect to transfer to another institution, every effort will be made to support students to enable a smooth transition.
