Request a Vacation Quarter

International students are eligible for a vacation quarter after completing three consecutive quarters.  For example, students usually study Fall, Winter and Spring quarters and then take Summer quarter as vacation.

During an authorized vacation quarter, students can remain in the U.S. without attending classes.  Students can also choose to study during their vacation quarter for less than 12 credits.

To make sure your vacation quarter is authorized, please submit the appropriate form at

Note: Please make sure you are informed of approval or denial before you leave for home or take vacation. We recommend registering as a full-time student until you know you have been approved.
