Appointment Policies

General Policies

Students may schedule up to 2 appointments per day. Appointments cannot be scheduled back-to-back.

Students may schedule up to 4 appointments per week.

In-person appointments can be either 30 minutes or 60 minutes long. For these sessions, students are expected to participate in the session. Sessions are designed to engage students in active discussions about their writing; we are neither an editing nor a drop-off service.

Online/eTutoring appointments must be scheduled for 60 minutes and must be scheduled with a Consultant designated as available for eTutoring. Documents must be uploaded prior to the start of the appointment.

Late Policy

In order to best support all students, all appointments will be marked as missed after 10 minutes and made available for other students. Appointments marked as missed for tardiness count towards blocked accounts (see Cancellation Policy). 

Cancellation Policy

Students may cancel appointments at any point prior to their scheduled appointment. Cancellations can be made through the appointment system or in person with our Front Desk Staff.

Students who miss three (3) scheduled appointments without notifying the Writing Center will be blocked from making new appointments. To reactivate an account, please contact the University Writing Center at
