MISSED APPOINTMENT FEE
As of July 2019, the Wellness Center will be implementing a "No Show" policy that will result in a $15 fee for no shows and late cancellations, except for appointments with our psychiatrist or physician, which will result in a $25 fee for all no shows and late cancellations. Appointments must be cancelled within 4 hours of the scheduled appointment time. The Wellness Center is instituting this policy to improve access to services for students. When a student does not show for an appointment or cancel in advance, it prevents our office from offering the appointment to another student.
