Mississauga Secondary Academy Tutoring Centre
No Show and Late Cancellation Policy
As a primarily student-staffed facility, the Mississauga Secondary Academy Tutoring Centre relies on the punctuality and consistency of its customers in order to continue to provide these critical resources.
Unfortunately, our ability to provide those services to students is sometimes hampered when students book appointments with our tutors and then do not arrive for their appointments without formally canceling.
Additionally, our student tutors cannot earn wages unless they are tutoring students. When students do not show up for their appointments, a tutor loses potential wages and other students lose the benefit of scheduling an appointment.
As such, the Mississauga Secondary Academy Tutoring Centre formally adopted policies concerning No Show violations and Late Cancellations. All students utilizing the services of the MSATC agree to abide by these policies and agree to the consequences of policy violations as indicated by the Student Contract for Tutoring, signed by every student during their first registration through online application with the MSATC.
No Show and Late Cancellation Policy
All students utilizing the services of the Mississauga Secondary Academy Tutoring Centre agree to abide by these policies and agree to the consequences of policy violations as indicated by the Student Contract for Tutoring, signed by every student during their first application with the Mississauga Secondary Academy Tutoring Centre. To cancel an appointment, call the MSA main desk at (905) 232-0672. If no one answers, the MSA is equipped with a voice message system; please leave your cancellation notice through this messaging system.
Students with tutoring appointments have fifteen minutes to arrive for their intended appointment. If you do not arrive within fifteen minutes of your appointment’s scheduled start time, you will be considered a No Show. Tutors are no longer obligated to meet with a student who arrives more than fifteen minutes late for his/her session, but they may still choose to do so at their discretion.
Students are advised to cancel within 24 hours of their appointment’s schedule start time.
However, the Mississauga Secondary Academy Tutoring Centre recognizes that sometimes advanced notice is not possible. Appointments cancelled within two hours of the appointment’s schedule start time (or within fifteen minutes after the appointment has already started) are considered Late Cancellations.
In the event the student attempts to contact the Mississauga Secondary Academy Tutoring Centre to cancel an appointment outside the L Mississauga Secondary Academy Tutoring Centre’s operating hours (or a Center Supervisor or other staff member is unavailable to cancel the appointment at the specified time), students are advised to leave a message on the Mississauga Secondary Academy Tutoring Centre’s voicemail system (ext. 103). Students will not be unfairly penalized for unsuccessful cancellation attempts that may result due to internal communication errors or staffing discrepancies.
All No Show and Late Cancellation occurrences are reported through the Mississauga Secondary Academy Tutoring Centre’s appointment scheduling and data keeping system, TEAM SHIFTS.
The following outlines permissible actions when multiple No Show and/or Late Cancellations occur:
- A combination of three No Show and/or Late Cancellations within a semester or term period will result in a warning email from the Office Administrator or Assistant Administrator of the Mississauga Secondary Academy Tutoring Centre. This message can only be sent to the student’s MSA account (https://www.msaschool.com/home.php) on the main page of logon, and cannot be emailed to personal email addresses, even if that email address is on file with the Mississauga Secondary Academy Tutoring Centre.
- Any additional No Show and/or Late Cancellations will result in a temporary suspension of appointment-making privileges until the student meets with the Office Administrator or Assistant Administrator to clarify the policy. For online, regional campus, or students without reasonable access to the main campus, this meeting may take place over the telephone. Appointment-making privileges will be restored at the conclusion of the meeting/conversation to clarify the policy.
- Any subsequent No Show and/or Late Cancellations may result in a permanent revocation of appointment-making privileges. Affected students may still utilize drop-in tutoring (subsequent to tutor availability). Appointment-making privileges will be restored at the beginning of the following semester/term. If necessary, the matter may be escalated to the Vice Principal of Admission for further consideration.
