H.P.A.O. Advising Tardy, Cancellation and “No-Show” Policies 

1. Tardy Policy: If you are more than 10 minutes late to your scheduled appointment time, your appointment will be cancelled and this will be counted as a “No-show”.

2. Cancellation Policy: If you must cancel your appointment…

We understand that life happens and we want to support you through your pre health journey. Because we have more students than we can accommodate, we ask that you be considerate of others’ need for advising and do your best to attend your appointment. 

  • If you need to cancel your appointment please do so at least 24 hours in advance and provide a detailed reason for your cancellation (will be kept confidential, feel free to be as open as possible).

3. “No-Show” Policy: If a student misses their appointment without notifying our office ahead of time, it counts as a “No-show.”

  • Students who do not attend their scheduled appointment or arrive 10 minutes late will be considered a No Show and will be denied a new appointment for 1 month (minimum). If you reach out 24 hours after your missed appointment time with documentation/explanation of your absence we will consider removing the appointment penalties.

4. Extenuating Circumstances Policy: Should extenuating circumstances occur (i.e. death in the family, severe sickness, Covid-19 related illness, etc.) and as a result, a student misses their advising appointment, they should contact the H.P.A.O. advising staff at as soon as possible to discuss scheduling options (subject to availability constraints).
