Leave of Absence

Students who wish to apply for a leave of absence must submit a written request to the administrative office:

Silicon Valley Business Institute
1525 McCarthy Boulevard, Milpitas, CA 95035

The written notice must contain a statement that includes the reason for the request. At the discretion of the Chief Academic Officer, a leave of absence may be granted for a reasonable time, as warranted by the specific circumstances. If a student abuses the leave of absence request, and if such applications show a pattern of delays, or should the issuance of a leave of absence be such that it would significantly interfere with the planned completion of a program of study, the Chief Academic Officer may, at his/her sole discretion, dismiss a student from the program and issue any refunds the student may be eligible for.
