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 Online Response appointment.  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 Online appointment.  If you select “Real Time Online Response Appointment,” upload your paper after you click save and a tutor will contact you at your time of appointment.  Please note:  All Real Time appointments should be scheduled for an hour.
