For academic programs (MBA and MSCSE), USTSV is on a year-round trimester system that is comprised of three full terms each year and one summer interim term.

For Hacker Academy's certified programs, USTSV is on a cycle of about three months, which means individual courses are offered about every three months and their enrollments continue.

The F.A.S.T program is held periodically and based on students' demand.
