Semester Break

After two (2) semesters are completed, an F-1 student may request a semester break.

Important Notes:
  • Harrisburg University operates on a trimester schedule and full time enrollment is expected year round.  You must be approved for a semester break by the International Student Office.
  • A student may NOT be employed on Curricular Practical Training (CPT) while on a semester break.
  • When a semester break is approved, CPT must cease as of the last day of classes of the semester before the break.
  • A student on break is not required to leave the U.S.
