No Show/Late Cancellation/Late Reschedule Policy: A no-show is someone who misses an appointment without cancelling at least 24 hours in advance. Three no-show appointments during an acedemic year (June-May) will likely result in the student's loss of appointment scheduling privileges. Students will need to talk directly with their counselor about options for their future care, which will likely include referral off campus.
