Below is the language that we display for students on the appointment screen in TutorTrac when they are scheduling their own appointments. The “industry standard” for no-shows seems to be three strikes and you’re out.
Please only schedule 1 appointment at a time for each course that you are currently enrolled in. Please be on time and bring all related materials to your appointment. If you need to cancel an appointment, you MUST contact us at least 3 hours prior to the appointment time. Arriving late (or not at all) will result in a no-show. An excessive number of cancelations or no-shows will result in your appointment-making privileges being suspended. You can contact Academic Success reception at (614) xxx-xxxx or [log in to unmask].
When students reach this no-show limit, we typically hear from them, and I then tell them they need to meet with me to review/explain their appointment history before their appointment-making privileges can be restored. I tell them that our goal is not to “ban” them from taking advantage of our services, but that they need to understand and follow the appointment rules and policies we have in place.

Good Morning Folks!
Here at BSU, in our academic coaching program, we are combatting the issue of students making appointments and then not showing up (something I know is not an unfamiliar concern). Our particular concern is with students who are perpetual “no-showers” or who cancel multiple times. I am working on crafting language around a no show/cancellation policy that our coaches can have stamped at the bottom of their email signatures, so that students are aware of, for lack of a better term, the consequences of missing appointments repeatedly.
In an effort to use the fantastic resources around me, I’m looking to see if any of you have any language you currently use that might be adaptable for our institution.
Thanks in advance!
