An international student can take an annual vacation semester after having been enrolled full-time for two consecutive semesters. If an international student does not have a minimum of 12 credits each semester, he/she will not be eligible to go on vacation. An annual vacation can only be taken if the international student intends to register for the following semester. Vacations cannot be taken during the international student’s final semester. The international student must complete the Annual Vacation Application online at BC International and receive approval before going on vacation. Vacations should not be mistaken for in-between semester breaks. Those periods of time, such as Christmas break, are separate from annual vacations.
