Appointment and Walk-In Policy

Meeting with an Advisor

SSHA advisors see students on an appointment or walk-in basis. Walk-in hours are always located on the front page of our website.

Appointments and Walk-ins

  • Appointments are available throughout the semester; requests for appointments are scheduled on-line by clicking on the advisor's appointment link.
  • Walk-in hours are held for a specific amount of time every week; days and times will always be posted on the homepage of the SSHA Advising website. 

Cancellation of Appointments

We recognize situations arise that may create a need to reschedule or cancel your appointment. A two (2) hour prior-notification, via email, is requested. Reciprocal courtesy will be extended to students should Advisors need to cancel. Should an advisor need to cancel an appointment with less than two (2) hour prior-notification, you will be contacted via email and phone calll.

No-Show Policy

This policy is not meant to be punitive, but to be fair and equitable to all students. During peak advising periods, appointment times are premium. If you do not notify the advisor with whom you have a scheduled appointment at least two (2) Hours in advance that you are unable to keep the appointment, your absence will be noted as a “no-show.” After two no-shows, you will NOT be able to schedule an appointment for the remainder of the semester. You will be allowed to meet with your academic advisor during walk-in hours.

Late-Show Policy

In an effort to provide you the service and assistance you need during an appointment, you may not be more than five (5) minutes late to your scheduled appointment. Should you be more than five (5) minutes late, your appointment will be cancelled and you will have to reschedule. You will be allowed to meet with your academic advisor during walk-in hours.
