Writing Center Schedule
The Writing Center offers both appointments and walk-in sessions for students.
- Are 45 minutes long (minimum 25 minutes).
- Start at 9AM Monday through Friday.

- Available on a first-come first-served basis:
Monday & Friday: 9am - 1pm
Tuesday & Thursday: 12 - 5pm
Wednesday: 5 - 7pm
In order to make our services accessible to more students and respect your and your tutor's time, please keep the following policies in mind when scheduling an appointment:
- Session limits - Students can use our services once a day for three times a week.
- Lateness - Students who are more than 10 minutes late to an appointment may only be seen as a walk-in if the schedule allows.
- No-shows/Cancellations - Please cancel 1 day in advance of your appointment. If a student cancels or misses more than 3 appointments, s/he may come in only during walk-in sessions for the rest of the semester.
- Required Visits – In order to allow tutors time to review drafts and offer strategies for students to practice, students must meet for a minimum of 25 minutes for an appointment and 15 minutes for a walk-in session. Students must also be prepared to work on a full draft as required by their professor. If these requirements are not met, the visit will not count as a full session and the professor will not be notified.
- Take-Home Exams – Writing Center tutors may not assist students with any work on a take-home exam/quiz unless we have specific permission from the instructor.
