Reschedule and Cancellation Policy – Appointments must be rescheduled or cancelled at least 24-hours before the scheduled appointment time. Regardless of the method of cancellation (online, by email, or by voicemail), any appointment cancelled with less than 24-hours’ notice will be marked as “missed”. Failure to properly cancel or reschedule 3 appointments will result in a blocked account. If your account is blocked, you should keep your scheduled appointments, but in order to make additional appointments you will need to meet with the Interim Director or Student Manager for system reinstatement.

Appointment Scheduling – Appointments are scheduled for either 30 or 60-minute blocks depending upon the type of service you need. You must schedule a separate appointment for EACH service. Center administrative staff routinely check appointments, so be aware that any 60-minute appointments scheduled for only 30-minutes will NOT be honored. To avoid missing assignment deadlines schedule early, contact us with questions, and use the information below to determine the correct appointment length.

Make the Most of Your Appointment – Be mindful of the appointments you set! We assist thousands of UCCS students every semester, so check your syllabus and set up your appointments in advance. If you arrive 10-minutes late your appointment, please know it will be marked as a “missed” appointment.

Waitlist – Can’t get the appointment you want? Ask us how to join the system waitlist so that you can be informed (by text or email) when appointments become available.

Group Practices/Facilitations – All group members are strongly encouraged to arrive together. Group practices/facilitations will begin promptly, therefore any group member who arrives 10-minutes late will not be allowed into the practice or facilitation.
