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

To make an appointment, visit our online schedule, register, log in, and select one of our Writing Center locations from the dropdown menu. All menus have online appointments available. Select the day, time, and writing coach that work best for you, then fill out the appointment form completely. You can upload the project you want to work on, if it is ready. White boxes on the schedule indicate open 15-minute segments; schedule 45-minute blocks (3 white boxes) for online sessions.

Learn how to schedule and participate in an online appointment using these files: Scheduling Online Appointments (PDF) and Participating in 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 appointment privileges at the Writing Center for the remainder of the semester. Walk-ins will still be permitted.
