Active duty students do not go on leave during semester breaks like the other midshipmen unless they have requested and been granted leave. The Commanding Officer generally grants periods of special liberty during the semester breaks as well. MECEP’s will need approval from MOI/AMOI and STA-21’s will have to place a leave chit with the STA-21 advisor. On weekends, if you travel farther than 300 miles from the unit, you are required to take leave.
This is conducted twice a year, and active duty standards still apply.
