Making an Appointment

The Writing Center offers a variety of appointments for writers who are both on campus and off campus. Writers can schedule a Face-to-Face appointment or Real Time Phone Appointments. Writers who wish to email their paper to the Writing Center mailbox and receive comments from a tutor do not need to make an appointment.


To make an appointment online, visit, create an account, and sign in. The Writing Center schedule will open. Make an appointment with a tutor by double clicking on an empty white box and filling out the form that opens. Be sure to select either a Face to Face or Real Time Phone appointment. If you select “Real Time Phone Appointment,” upload your paper after you click save and a tutor will contact you at your time of appointment. Please note: All Real Time Phone appointments should be scheduled for an hour.
