Appointment Cancellation Policy

  • Due to an increase in the number of last minute appointment cancellations and no-shows, the Career Services Center has instituted a new Counseling Appointment Cancellation Policy to help ensure that appointments remain available for those students that can commit to a scheduled time.
  • To cancel a scheduled appointment, please call the Career Services front desk (415) 422-6216 at least 24 hours prior to your appointment.
  • If you are a no-show or cancel with less than 24 hours notice for two consecutive appointments you must wait at least 30 days after your last scheduled appointment to make another appointment with the Career Services Center.

Reciprocity Services

  • For USF students/alumni seeking reciprocity at other institutions:
    • USF students/alumni can request reciprocity from 26 other Jesuit institutions across the U.S. Click here for a list of these institutions. NOTE: Georgetown does not participate in this program.
    • Additionally, reciprocity is provided by many other Catholic universities and some private universities that are similar in size and scope to USF.
    • Contact the university career center to learn of their specific reciprocity requirements. Most likely they will need an email from USF Career Services Center verifying that you are a USF student/alumni and your date of graduation.
    • Contact Rosie Ceja ( to request this email. Include your USF student ID, major, and year of graduation, as well as to whom Rosie should send this email.
    • Some universities charge for the reciprocity service.

  • For non-USF alumni seeking reciprocity at USF:

  • What does reciprocity include?
    • Level One entitles alumni for other institutions access to USF's job listings database, DonsCareers. The annual fee for this level is $50.
    • Level Two entitles alumni from other institutions access to USF's job listings database, DonsCareers, as well as access to the CSC's workshops, handouts, career fairs,
      one drop-in (15 minutes) session, and one individual counseling session (50 minutes).
      It does not include On-Campus Interviews. The annual fee for this level is $100.
      Note: We accept cash or check for payment.

  • How do individuals receive reciprocal services at USF?
    • Their school's career services center must send the CSC a letter indicating the year of graduation and major.
    • We require a letter by email for each graduate from that school seeking access to our services.
    • We ask that the alumni seeking reciprocity contact CSC indicating that level of service they wish to receive and submit cash or check for fees.
    • Please address questions or comments to Rosie Ceja at
