Student Complaints/Grievance Policy or Procedures


Most problems or complaints that students may have with the school or its administrators can be resolved through a personal meeting with the student’s instructor or a counselor. If, however, this action does not resolve the matter to the satisfaction of the student, he/she may submit a written complaint to the administrative office:

Silicon Valley Business Institute

1525 McCarthy Boulevard, Milpitas, CA 95035

The written complaint must contain a statement of the nature of the problem, the date the problem occurred, the names of the individuals involved, copies of documents if any, which contain information regarding the problem, evidence demonstrating that the institution’s complaint procedure was properly followed, and the student’s signature. The student can expect to receive a written response within ten business days. Student’s rights are set forth at various places in this catalog. Contact the school director if you require additional information.
