Multiple No-Show Learning Module

Before completing the Multiple No-Show Learning Module, you must read PACE Advising Center's appointment and no-show policies. If you have any questions, please contact a PACE academic advisor by email: paceadvising@txstate.edu.

 


According to PACE Advising, when is an appointment considered a "no-show"? *

James has an appointment with a PACE Advisor on Monday morning at 10 a.m., and he also has a biology exam at 2 p.m. the same day. As the weekend begins, James decides he'll save the bulk of studying for his biology test for a Sunday night study session so everything will be fresh on his mind when he takes the exam on Monday. James is up until 3 a.m. studying for the exam. When he wakes up, he sees that it is 10:12 a.m., and he is late for his advising appointment. James immediately calls the PACE Advising Center and asks to reschedule his appointment for later that day.

Will James be considered a no-show for his 10 a.m. appointment? *
Will James be able to reschedule his appointment for 10:30 a.m. the same day? *
According to SLAC, how could James have studied more effectively, managed time more efficiently, and perhaps avoided waking up late? (See link to SLAC's website above.) *

Because PACE Advising Center can get busy during registration time, Cristal decided to schedule an advising appointment two weeks in advance to plan for next semester. When the day of her appointment arrives, Cristal is stressed — she's been procrastinating and needs to finish her ENG 1310 essay. As her essay is due today, Cristal decides to ignore her advising appointment and keep writing. This is Cristal's third no-show of the semester. When freshman registration opens later that month, Cristal doesn't know what classes to choose for her major.

With three (3) no-shows on her record, how can Cristal schedule an appointment with a PACE Advisor? *
According to SLAC, how could Cristal have completed her ENG 1310 essay with time to spare? (See link to SLAC's website above.) *

Gabby has a 10 a.m. appointment with her PACE advisor but wakes up at 9 a.m. with a fever and sore throat. She decides it might not be the best idea to attend her advising appointment.

If Gabby calls PACE Advising Center at 9:15 a.m., can she still reschedule her appointment for a later date without being considered a no-show? *
