Student Crisis Information

At times in the course of going through AGS, a student may encounter a personal crisis, such as a death in the family, a divorce, a health issue, increased demands at work or family issues. These problems can impact the student’s ability to progress through the program in a timely fashion. AGS understands that this occasionally happens, and is available to work out an alternative plan, if necessary.

A meeting should be set up with the Program Chair to discuss options if help is needed to address the current crisis and time necessary to resolve it. If referrals are needed to find additional help, the Program Chair will discuss possibilities that are available. If the plan is changed, a letter should be sent to the Registrar stating the circumstances and the plan that has been approved by the Program Chair.

If faced with an extended crisis, students should follow the Leave of Absence guidelines included in this Catalog / Handbook.
