Vacation Term

Vacation Policies

Full time enrollment is required for all F-1 and J-1 students during autumn and spring semesters. All students will automatically be granted a vacation term for each summer semester, unless it is the student’s first term of enrollment or graduating term.

Vacation term limits are unrelated to the Reduced Course Load procedure. As an F-1 and J-1 student you may still be authorized to enroll below full-time during your final semester before graduation if you file the Final Term - Reduced Course Load application prior to the first day of classes for the term.
