I-20 Student Summer Vacation Policy

Full-time ESL students with F-1 visa status are permitted to take vacation after nine months of study. Those who have completed consecutive fall and spring semesters may take off the entire summer. Those who have completed only the spring term must register for one summer session.  In both cases, students must state an intention to register for the following fall term in order to qualify for vacation.
