HOPE supports mission families who leave for furlough or return to their home country for an extended period of time. To best support the students’ academic progress, HOPE strongly recommends students leave for furlough in between the academic semesters. Tuition and fees are not refundable when a student leaves during the semester. In order to best accommodate a student’s transition, HOPE requires furlough or extended leave requests to be submitted no later than March 15 for leave during Semester 1 (Aug to Dec) and by October 15 for leave during Semester 2 (Jan – June). Furlough or extended leave students may hold their space at HOPE by paying $250 each semester they are absent. In order to accommodate families in Cambodia, spaces cannot be held for more than two consecutive semesters.
Semester one is from August to December and semester two is from January to June. Please inform HOPE of any changes to your furlough plans as soon as possible.
