Appointment FAQs and Policies

What happens if I'm late for my appointment?

Unless you notify us, your appointment may be forfeited if you are more than 5 minutes late.

What happens if I don't make or don't show up for my scheduled appointment?

In order to keep appointments available for students, appointments must be cancelled at least 8 hours in advance.  Missing or being late for an appointment means someone else is unable to use that open time slot. Therefore, our policy requires students to wait a full-week before making another appointment after a no-show or a short-notice cancellation (less than 8 hours). If you're regularly a no-show, we may not allow you to make appointments for the remainder of the semester.

How will my professor know I visited the SCC?

Tell the SCC consultant you need a visit notification email sent to your professor.  The notification email will let your professor know the date/time of your SCC visit and what you did during your appointment.

How often can I visit the SCC?

In order to accommodate all students fairly, we may ask you to limit your appointments to no more than 2 a week based on availability.

Please allow at least 24 hours between scheduled SCC visits so you can take the suggestions of the SCC consultant into consideration, make necessary revisions, and rehearse more before your next appointment.
