A no-show, or missed appointment, is noted in the system if you:
After three no-shows, a student will be unable to schedule another advising appointment in Navigate and will need to contact their primary advisor via email for advising appointment options.
For general advising questions, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. For the quickest service, please include your Student Number in all communications.
Note: During registration seasons, we experience a high volume of calls and emails. During those times it may take us a few days to respond to you.
