Intermission allows Chicago undergraduate students in good academic standing to retain active status while not enrolled in residential, on-campus courses. Intermission may be requested for medical, financial, or personal reasons. Chicago campus students may only enroll in up to eight (8) credits of distance learning classes or their internship requirement. Students will be permitted to enroll in more than 8 credits of on-line credits while on Intermission for the FALL 2020 semester only. Students enrolling in the hyflex options for the fall 2020 semester do not need to apply for intermission.

$200 fee will be charged to the student’s account for each semester of intermission, with the exception of students who are enrolled in courses during intermission. Chicago campus students enrolled in distance learning courses while on intermission will not receive the Undergraduate Chicago Tuition Grant. Students not on probation may take a total of two (2) semesters of intermission (fall or spring).
