Appointment Availability

At certain points in the semester, our advisors' calendars fill up quickly. Please plan ahead: don't wait until the day or week before an application is due or the last month of your last semester to contact us. If you need immediate assistance or cannot meet during our normal business hours, you may email us at siscareer@american.edu, and we will do what we can to help.

Our No-Show Policy

Outside of sudden illness or emergency, no-shows to appointments and events are not acceptable. Students who accumulate multiple no-shows will be suspended from further use of our services and must meet with the director to discuss their absences and regain access.
