Zoom Preference During Registration Periods

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.
