Additional Availability

Advising & Planning appointments outside of available hours can be scheduled on a case-by-case basis. Please email with your request, including multiple days and times that work for you.

Please note that students may book an Advising & Planning appointment with any program advisor whose availability matches their own. You may also email for assistance. We are happy to help and are here for you!

Missed Appointment Policy

Program advisors make a concerted effort to maintain scheduled appointments. However, academic, professional, and personal obligations and/or illness may impact availability. Should we need to cancel or reschedule a scheduled appointment, we will notify you via CCA email as soon as we can. Similarly, we ask that you notify Advising & Planning of changes to your availability as early as possible.

To cancel or reschedule an appointment, please follow the instructions in your appointment confirmation email. You may also notify your program advisor directly or email

Advising & Planning Appointments are in high demand. Your timely cancelation frees us up to meet with other students. Be sure to check your schedule carefully in order to avoid multiple cancellations.

Failure to be present at the time of a scheduled appointment without cancelation or proper notification will be marked as "MISSED." Students who miss three appointments in one semester should plan to meet with the director or assistant director only for the remainder of the semester.
