No-Show policy for appointments with University Career Center staff

When a student fails to show up for a scheduled appointment, it negatively impacts their fellow students’ access to University Career Center appointments.  With a finite number of appointments available each week, and an increasing demand for these appointment times, it is unacceptable for students to no-show for appointments with University Career Center staff or guest advisors.  Due to the professional nature of University Career Center appointments, the following policy will be enforced when a client fails to show up for a scheduled University Career Center appointment.

First No-Show

  • If you no-show for a scheduled appointment with a Career Coach, you may receive an e-mail informing you that you have missed a scheduled appointment, and that a second appointment no-show on your part will result in the loss of your ability to schedule further appointments on-line, for the semester.

Second No-Show

  • If you no-show for a scheduled appointment with a Career Coach a second time, your ability to schedule appointments will be rescinded for the remainder of the semester that your second no-show occurred.  In addition, your access to Handshake will be blocked for that same semester.

Third No-Show/Subsequent No-Show in same academic year

  • If you no-show for a scheduled appointment with a Career Coach a third/subsequent time, your ability to schedule appointments and utilize Handshake will be rescinded for the remainder of the academic year. You may still attend University Career Center programs and Events.

Note:

  • No-shows will be reset/cleared at the start of each academic year and will not carry over from year to year.
  • In order to regain your ability to utilize these services, you must meet with our Assistant Director for Counseling and Advising Services to discuss your no-shows and request your access be reinstated.
  • A no-show is considered any appointment in which a student fails to attend without calling to cancel (up to the start of the appointment time).
  • There is a separate policy for no-show appointments with guest employer, organization representatives and non-University Career Center staff that have been scheduled via the University Career Center.
