Appointment Cancellation and No-Show Policy: A no-show is someone who misses an appointment without cancelling. If a student has two no-show appointments in any semester, they need to talk directly with their counselor about options for their future care prior to rescheduling which will likely include referral off campus. A pattern of repeated cancellations, three of more in a semester, will indicate to the counselor the need to limit appointment frequency and/or consider a referral of services.

Certain clinical health services are covered for UWRF students by Student Health Services through Pierce County Reproductive Health in River Falls, 1234 S. Wasson Lane, River Falls.
