Career Advising Expectations & Policies

As our office is tasked with promoting professional behavior and meeting the needs of many students, our advising expectations and policies include, but are not limited to the following:

  • If you are unable to make a career advising appointment, you must cancel at least 24 hours in advance of your scheduled appointment by emailing your scheduled advisor or cancelling through the appointment scheduling software
  • If you miss or cancel with less than 24 hours notice for 2 career advising appointments, future advising appointments may be restricted until you complete certain actions assigned by a professional career advisor
  • Conducting yourself in a manner consistent with UW-Madison’s code of student conduct (UWS 17.09)

We believe these policies will promote greater accessibility to our services, as well as an inclusive and respectful space.  We look forward to working with you!
