Student Appointment No Show Departmental Procedures
The Career, Mentoring, and Professional Development Center maintains a busy schedule with appointments, on-campus interviews and career and service related events. We encourage students to be professional and keep scheduled appointment times. We understand that sometimes situations occur which may prevent that; but it is important to be professional in responding to those situations (Please call the office at (717) 477-1484 if you are unable to keep your scheduled appointment/interview time). Failure to keep scheduled appointments prevents others from scheduling appointments; and it reflects poorly on the student, the Career, Mentoring, and Professional Development Center and the institution when students fail to keep scheduled interview times. The Career, Mentoring, and Professional Development Center has developed a “ Student Appointment No Show/Cancellation Procedures” which will be followed. Multiple occurrences of missed appointments will result in suspension of services to the CMPDC until approval/reinstatement from the Director.
