Leave of Absence

A student may request a Leave of Absence due to illness or other extenuating circumstances by submitting The Request for Leave of Absence form to the Program Chair. Upon review of the request, a leave may be granted for up to twelve months. An approved Leave of Absence does not extend the deadlines for completion of course work already in process, including the Master's Project or Portfolio. Students may take one LOA not to exceed 12 months, or smaller incremental leaves not to exceed 12 months time in total. If a student does not return by the agreed-upon deadline and wishes to enroll at a later time, he or she will be required to reapply for admission and follow AGS policies and procedures in place at that time.
