Appointments & Advising No-Show Policy

We understand that unexpected academic obligations, work commitments, and illnesses can affect your schedule. However, please advise the Center for Career Exploration of any change as early as possible, as there is a high demand for appointments. Your cancellation will allow us to offer your time slot to another student. Be sure to check your schedule carefully in order to avoid multiple appointment cancellations.

Appointment Cancellation Policy

We understand that unexpected academic obligations, work commitments or illnesses can affect your schedule. However, please advise the Knowlton Center of any changes to your scheduled appointments as early as possible. We have high demand for appointments so your cancellation will allow us to offer your time slot to another student, if cancelled early enough.Be sure to check your schedule carefully in order to avoid multiple appointment cancellations.

If you need to cancel an appointment, please do so by calling 740.587.6656 as soon as you know you need to cancel. If you do not cancel the appointment and do not show up, it will be recorded as a “no show” in Handshake. Two or more no-shows in a semester may result in a suspension of all Handshake privileges until you meet with a Knowlton Center staff person to discuss time management and the importance of keeping appointments.

Late arrival policy

If you arrive later than 10 minutes for your appointment, you may be asked to reschedule.

Workshop/Program RSVP No-Show Policy

Participants are considered “no-shows” when they fail to cancel their RSVPs through Knowlton Center staff without sufficient notice (within 24 hours of the program) some events may require advanced notice, especially if there a per person cost associated with the program. Two or more no-shows in a semester may result in a suspension of all Handshake privileges until you meet with a Knowlton Center staff person to discuss time management and the importance of keeping appointments.

Please note that when participant’s no-show for events that require an RSVP, it is unfair to potential participants who wanted to attend but couldn't due to a possible waitlist. In addition, for some events (not all) we have employers and organizers who participate and they are giving their time to assist Denison students. Thus, having no-shows for RSVP events not only reflects negatively on you, but on Denison University as well. Moreover, such lapses of etiquette are generally not tolerated in business and civic settings.
