San Francisco university to pay $2.5M over fraud allegations

The Justice Department says the University of San Francisco has agreed to pay $2.5 million over allegations it submitted fraudulent information to obtain AmeriCorps grant money. The U.S. Attorney’s Office says the private Jesuit university obtained $1.7 million for its teacher residency program by submitting falsified time sheets. The teaching program grants money for tuition and living expenses to students who volunteer at high-needs schools. The department says the university cooperated with investigators. A whistleblower complaint prompted the investigation.  The university said it was pleased to resolve the long-running legal case.
