It is imperative that you are on time to your appointments in order to properly cover all the relevant topics. If you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment, you must notify Student Services at 512.716.4001 at least four hours in advance.  If you fail to give four hours’ notice or if you do not attend your appointment, your absence will be noted as a No-Show. If you are more than 10 minutes late for the appointment, you will need to reschedule unless the advisor approves the late appointment.
