Federal officials are investigating Tri-Valley University, accusing the institution of being a front to provide immigrants with fraudulent student visas. The San Francisco Chronicle reports that the Pleasanton, California, College has accepted millions of dollars in exchange for obtaining visas under false pretenses. The school’s founder, Susan Xiao-Ping Su is under investigation for fraud.
According to Pleasanton Weekly, Tri-Valley claims to offer a master’s and doctorate degrees in a number of subjects and is housed in a two-story office building. Calls to the college have gone unanswered and the school has not been open for business since Friday. Xiao-Ping Su described Tri-Valley as “a Christian Higher Education Institution offering quality academic programs in Engineering, Business, Art, Law and Medicine with live synchronous virtual classroom instruction.”
