Appointment and Walk-In Policy

Appointments and Walk-ins

  • Appointments are available throughout the semester; requests for appointments are done on-line by clicking on the advisor's name on the Office Hours page.
  • Walk-in hours are held for a specific amount of time every week; days and times will always be posted on the homepage of the NS Advising website. 

Cancellation of Appointments

We recognize situations arise that may create a need to reschedule or cancel your appointment. A two (2) hour prior-notification is requested. Reciprocal courtesy will be extended to students should Advisors need to cancel.

No-Show Policy

This policy is not meant to be punitive, but to be fair and equitable to all students. During peak advising periods, appointment times are premium. If you do not notify the office two (2) Hours in advance that you are unable to keep the appointment, your absence will be noted as a “no-show.” After two no-shows, you will NOT be able to schedule an appointment for the remainder of the semester. You will be allowed to meet with your academic advisor during walk-in hours.
