Edward D. Mysak Clinic for Communication Disorders

Attendance Policy

Due to the increasing demand for services and its responsibility to train graduate students, the Edward D. Mysak Clinic for Communication Disorders must uphold an attendance policy:

  • If a client has more than 3 absences unrelated to extraordinary circumstances, or religious holidays, the Clinic Director will review the client's attendance record to determine if services should be terminated.
  • If a client arrives more than 15 minutes late for a scheduled session, the session will not be conducted and will be counted as an absence.
  • Every effort will be made to make up any session missed or canceled by our clinicians.  It is unlikely that sessions canceled by the client will be able to be rescheduled.
  • Clients will not be reimbursed for missed or canceled sessions because fees are charged by semester not per session.
