When you schedule an in-person or online interview, you are expected to follow through and be on time.

  • No Call/No Show” (NCNS) is when a student does not attend the interview, in-person or online, without prior notice.
  • Late Cancellation” is when a student cancels an interview on very short notice, typically on the same day.

NCNS is an inappropriate behavior since it leads to a loss of the staff’s valuable time and resources and disrupts other students’ scheduled appointments.

Regardless of whether the interview is in-person or online, it is mandatory to contact the Financial Aid Front Desk agent on +961 9 600 205/209 at least (2) two days before the scheduled appointment. The agent will reschedule it for a later date. If you cannot reach the Front Desk agent by phone, you can send an email to, apologizing for missing the interview and stating the due cause of your cancellation.

Failure to comply with the NCNS policy will expose you to the risk of not being granted financial aid for the ongoing semester.

Appeal: Any student who assumes being mistakenly identified as an NCNS or “Late Cancellation” may request an individual review of his/her case by the Director of the Financial Aid Office.
