If you need to take a break from your studies for a short time period, please come to the ISSC for advisement on how an absence from studies will impact your F-1/J-1 status.
Taking a break from studies will impact your SEVIS record. Here's what you should do:
If you take a break from your studies and return later, your OPT clock will be reset. When you return to study, you have to maintain your F-1 status for at least one academic year before you are eligible for OPT. If you only have one semester left to complete your degree program, you will not be eligible for OPT.
