Marshall University Office of Career Education Student Appointment Policy

RATIONALE:

  • Students arriving late and/or missing appointments creates a scheduling issue for the Office of Career Education (CE) staff and other students. Late arrivals will cause other students to wait past their scheduled appointment time and missed appointments take time away opportunities for others trying to get appointments with CE staff.
  • Walk-in appointments may be sent from other departments or stopping by on their own. While CE staff try to accommodate this situation, there are times when no one is available.
  • An office-wide policy and procedure do not currently exist for student appointments.

POLICY:

Late

  • Students are considered late if they arrive 10 or more minutes past their scheduled appointment time with a CE staff member.
  • If a student must be late, he/she must notify the Office of Career Education via phone or email by the scheduled appointment time.
  • If notification has not been received by the scheduled appointment time, the student may need to reschedule the appointment.

No-Show

  • Students are considered “no-shows” if they miss their appointment with a CE staff member without notifying the office.
  • If a student must miss his/her appointment for any reason, he/she must give the Office of Career Education 1 hours’ notice via phone or email.
  • Notification received beyond 1 hours will be considered a no-show.
  • For required class assignments, students who cancel an appointment more than one time will not have permission to complete the assignment.

Walk-in

  • Students will be seen if a CE staff member is available.

Mock Interviews

  • Students who do not contact the Office of Career Education 24 hours prior to the scheduled mock interview will be considered a no show and will not be allowed to reschedule.

MONITORING: Policy to be reviewed a minimum of once per year by the Office of Career Education staff.
