Do Not Show Policy (DNS)
Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS)
March 2018

More and more students, like you, are seeing the services here in CAPS as important and helpful. Due to this increasing demand for services, we often have students waiting to get an appointment to come in and talk. The problem is that if you do not show (DNS) for a session, or cancel at the last minute, that leaves open time in our schedules that other struggling students might have been able to use. Thus, we are needing to institute a new policy regarding not showing up for sessions as follows:

  •  If you realize that you need to cancel an appointment, please call to inform us of this at least 24 hours in advance.
  •  1st DNS: Your clinician will talk with you at your next session about the importance of making it to your sessions.
  •  2nd DNS: Any future appointments you have will be cancelled. You will not be allowed to reschedule until you have talked with the Director of CAPS by phone to review the circumstances of your situation that are preventing you from attending your sessions. 
  • 3rd DNS: You will not be allowed to schedule for at least 60 days except for emergency services. We will give you information about our drop in groups and a list of resources in the community.
Note: This policy was effective as of March 19, 2018. Any prior instances of DNS will not be counted.
