The Writing Center offers online consultations for graduate, online, regional campus, and nonresidential students. Using chat, video, and a shared white board, students meet with our experienced writing coaches and receive valuable feedback without the commute.

To make an appointment, go to our schedule at, register, log in, and select one of our Writing Center locations from the dropdown menu. All menus have online appointments available. White boxes on the schedule indicate open 30-minute slots. Select the day, time, and writing coach that work best for you and then fill out the appointment form completely. You can upload the project you want to work on if it is ready. Please schedule 60-minute blocks for online sessions.

Learn about Participating in Online Appointments (PDF), or download detailed instructions about Scheduling Online Appointments (PDF).

Due to high demand, students are limited to two appointments per week and one appointment per day. If you need to cancel, please do so at least 24 hours in advance so that another student can fill the appointment slot. Students who fail to cancel scheduled appointments in a timely manner three times will lose Writing Center privileges for the remainder of the semester.
