Scheduling an Appointment

To schedule with us, you can use our appointment scheduling system. Please view our scheduling instructions if you have not scheduled with us before. You can inform us of any learning accommodations or needs when you schedule.

Preparing for In-Person Appointments

You should come to your appointment with some ideas about what you'd like to work on for 45 minutes. You can bring a print or digital copy of your paper. You can also bring your own computer or use one of the writing center's laptops.

We ask that you also bring the following when applicable:

  • The assignment sheet and course syllabus
  • Any writing you’ve already done, including notes, outlines, or early drafts
  • Relevant books, articles, or other resources you’re using
  • Any feedback you’ve already received

No-Show Policy

If you need to cancel your appointment, please do so as soon as possible. You can cancel by returning to our scheduling system (see our cancelling instructions).

If you do not cancel your appointment and do not show up for your appointment, your appointment will be marked as a "no-show." After 2 no-shows, you will lose access to your online account and must schedule by emailing
