Starting this fall 2022, requesting Intermission will no longer be necessary. Chicago undergraduate students who previously were required to take intermission to take a semester off will now be permitted to take up to two (2) consecutive semesters of nonenrollment without informing the Office of Academic Records. There is no cumulative limit to the number of non-enrollment semesters a student can take, but taking more than two in a row will result in automatic discontinuation per our non-enrollment policy stated in the academic catalog.

Students are still subject to all program time limit policies related to their academic program and will be required to change to a newer curriculum or be discontinued if in violation of their program time limit.

If you have any questions about this policy change, please contact
