An F-1 student with an active SEVIS status, who has attended Strayer University for three consecutive quarters, may take one quarter off or enroll in less than full-time studies for a quarter. Students must apply for and receive approval of such vacation prior to taking the quarter off. After the approved quarter off or an approved quarter with less than full-time enrollment, the student must be enrolled for another three consecutive quarters, in full-time status, before being eligible for another vacation. For example, students who begin their studies in the Winter Quarter would not be eligible to take a quarter off until the Fall Quarter (if they have maintained their full-time status during the Winter, Spring, and Summer Quarters). The Summer Quarter is not an automatic quarter off.
