Is it correct to use "reschedule" as a noun?

We apologize for the reschedule.

No dictionary defines the word as a noun. Yet, the sentence above is from a test writing assignment...

I searched "The Corpus of Contemporary American English", a collection of a billion or so words from 1990 to 2019, for "the reschedule" and "a reschedule". The search had 2 results with "the" and 3 with "a", that is, not many at all. It's completely understandable, but it might be better to stick with "rescheduling".

You can try this yourself:
