NO SHOW POLICY

Students must cancel appointments no later than 24 hours in advance. Appointments that are not canceled will be registered as ‘no show’. After 3 no-shows, the student loses the privilege of booking appointments through TutorTrac and must meet with the Tutoring Services Coordinator in order for their access to the system to be reinstated.

Fee-based appointments are charged to the student’s bursar account unless cancelled at least 24 hours in advance.

In case of an emergency in which the student cannot access TutorTrac to cancel their appointment, they may call the THINK TANK front desk at (520) 626-0530.
