Extensions on written examinations may be requested, if needed, from the appropriate Faculty Mentor. Students should contact the Mentor directly by email, not the AHOS office staff.

Leaves of Absence are permitted for a limited amount of time, if a break from study should be required. For Master’s degree students, a leave of absence fee of $50 per year is required in order to be kept on the student roster. Upon return, Master’s students pay a tuition fee of $750 (half tuition). (Full tuition is $1,500.) The student then resumes study and the writing of the thesis.
