The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center School of Health Professions Teach-Out Process
In the event the decision to close a degree program in the School of Health Professions is taken, a formalized process will be followed. The MD Anderson School of Health Professions will make a good faith effort to assist affected students, faculty, administrative and support staff so that they experience minimal disruption in the pursuit of their course of study or professional careers. In all cases, individuals will be notified of the decision to close a program as soon as possible so that the affected individuals can make appropriate plans.
A teach–out agreement is a written agreement between institutions that provides for the equitable treatment of students and a reasonable opportunity for students to complete their program of study. In such cases, in accord with Federal regulation 602.24©, a teach-out plan will be developed by MD Anderson that provides for the equitable treatment of students, and submitted to the office of the Commission on Colleges for approval prior to its implementation.
