Planned Gaps in Attendance

Students seeking a break in attendance should contact the Student Services department to determine the best way to accommodate a gap in attendance. Such breaks may impact funding eligibility and therefore should be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

Generally speaking, students receiving military benefits are funded on a term-by-term basis. Breaks between terms may be possible, although a student may be treated as a withdrawal and re-enrollment for reporting purposes.

For students receiving Federal Student Aid (FSA) a student is considered to have withdrawn for Title IV purposes if the student ceases attendance at any point prior to completing the payment period or period of enrollment unless the school obtains written confirmation from the student at the time of the withdrawal that he or she will attend a module that begins later in the same payment period or period of enrollment. Students should contact the Student Services department to determine eligibility for a break and submit the appropriate written confirmation as needed.
