Leaves of Absence
Leave of Absence Fee
If requested by the family and approved by the school before March 1 of the current school year, AIS Vienna may agree to prioritize enrollment for a qualified student who is leaving the school but expects to return within one year. This fee guarantees a place on the student’s return at the start of the following school year and at the regular fee rates for Re-Enrolling Students (see above). The Leave of Absence Fee is not prorated or refunded under any circumstance. A Leave of Absence may not be extended beyond one year. Approval must first be obtained through the Admissions Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
During the school year of the Leave of Absence, the family must adhere to the regular re-enrollment timelines and fees for the following school year in order to secure the student’s return to AIS Vienna.
Returning Students After Withdrawal
Return Within 1 Year: The regular fees for Re-Enrolling Students (see above) apply for students who withdraw from AIS Vienna but are re-enrolled within 1 year, with or without a Leave of Absence Fee guarantee.
Return After More Than 1 Year: The fees for New Students (see above) apply for students who withdraw from AIS Vienna but are re-enrolled after more than 1 year, with or without a Leave of Absence Fee guarantee.
