According to USCIS and SEVP policy, an F-1 language student must complete a minimum of one academic years' worth of classes before being eligible to take an annual vacation period. An academic year as defined by the US Department of Education is twenty-six weeks of instructional time if the school use clock hours; ESLi uses clock hours to measure progress.
Students who enter ESLi during the Fall term must complete Fall and Spring before being eligible for the annual vacation period. Students who enter ESLi during the Spring term will not be eligible for break until the end of Fall term. Students who enter ESLi for Summer term would not be eligible until the end of the following Spring term.
No student may take the Fall or Spring semesters as an annual vacation while enrolled at ESLi. If a student chooses to not attend ESLi for the fall or spring semester, his or her immigration records will be terminated based on failure to enroll.

On September 6, 2016, ESLi increased the program length of time on our Form I-20 from 12 months to 16 months. This change does not affect students. Students will still be placed in the appropriate level based on the score of their ESLi Placement Exam. 16 months simply reflects the length of time it would take a student to complete the U.S. ESLi program from Preparatory level 1 to Pre-University level 4. The change is in accordance with ESLi's SEVP certification.
