Cancellation Policy

Our goal is to provide quality service in a timely manner. In order to do so, we have implemented an cancellation policy. If it is necessary to cancel your scheduled appointment, you are required to call at least 3 hours in advance. Failure to do so will result in a "no show". Appointments are in high demand, and your early cancellation will give another student the possibility to have access to timely counseling services.

No-Show Policy

A "no-show" is someone who misses an appointment without canceling at least 3 hours before their scheduled appointment time. Failure to arrive at the time of a scheduled appointment will be recorded as a "no-show." Students who "no-show" for an appointment 3 times in a single semester will not be allowed to schedule another appointment until the following semester.

How to Cancel your Appointment

To cancel appointments, please call 619-660-4429 during our hours of operation at least 3 hours before your appointment time. If your appointment is on Monday morning, please call prior to 12:30 Friday afternoon.
