When it's Time for Your In Person Appointment

Come on in and see us! Undergraduate Writing Appointments will be in Memorial 016, unless otherwise specified on our appointment scheduler. Graduate Writing Appointments will be in Morris 017.

Please bring:

  • A facemask to wear for your protection and ours
  • Your student ID
  • Your draft and other supporting documents (like an assignment sheet). You can bring a printed copy, bring your laptop on which to pull them up, or ask to use one of our computers to pull up your files. (Note: We can't print it for you, but we'd be happy to look at it on-screen with you).
When It's Time for Your Online Appointment

This is our synchronous online option.

Appointments begin at the top the hour or on the half hour. Login to wconline, click on your appointment, and a dialog box will pop up for you to open your online appointment whiteboard/chat/audio & video. 

Please try to be on time! Your tutor will wait for around 10-15 minutes if you are not there on time. After that, they will need to mark you as a "no show" in order to be available to students on the waitlist for your appointment time.

More than 2 no-shows during a semester/session will result in the student's WCOnline account being disabled for the balance of the current semester/session.

Be sure to have the following available for your online appointment:

  • Access to your draft (as a Word doc, PowerPoint, or pdf)
  • Access to your assignment sheet or syllabus, if possible.
When It's Time for Your Etutoring Appointment

​This is our asynchronous appointment option.

Please make sure you have attached your draft and any other helpful materials to your appointment before the start time of the etutoring session (early is fine!). You will have been given the opportunity to do that when you made the appointment. To attach files after you have made the appointment, log back in to WCOnline (by clicking "make an appointment" on our homepage), find your appointment under "my appointments" beneath your name, click on the appointment, click "edit appointment" and attach your draft! Make sure to save the change.

You can expect your tutor to read and write response to your draft during the hour of your appointment. You should receive an email at the end of the appointment with feedback attached. If you do not receive this email, please contact us right away at, so we can fix what went wrong.
