How to Make an Online Appointment
Quick video on making appointments
The writing center now provides online appointments to students who cannot attend the writing center for scheduling reasons. These appointments will be asynchronous (students upload papers and receive written feedback at a later time). Students will book a time with one of our peer tutors and should expect to receive an advice letter from one of our tutors soon after the appointment time ends. Here is how to book an appointment with our center.
Making Online Appointments
Click “Make an Appointment”
This will take you to our appointment software. You will need to create an account the first time you use this software.
Select a time
While you won’t be physically in the center, you will still need to select a time for the peer tutor to look over your paper. If you make an appointment for 4:00 to 4:30pm, that is when the peer tutor will have time reserved to look at your piece. The white boxes represent times that tutors are available. After clicking on an initial time, you will be able to make an appointment for 15-60 minutes.
Here’s a good guideline for reserving times:
- 2 pages: 15 minutes
- 4 pages: 30 minutes
- 10 pages: 60 minutes
If you have more than one paper due that you’d like feedback from the writing center on, please make multiple appointments.
Make sure to select an eTutoring appointment
This is the only way for a peer tutor to know that this will not be a face-to-face appointment. Be sure to fill out the rest of the form. All sections are mandatory.
Upload your paper and assignment sheet
Multiple files can be uploaded. If possible, please upload, screenshot, or scan in your assignment prompt and include it for the peer tutor to review. If you don’t have a paper yet, please upload a letter to the tutor with any questions about the assignment.
Wait for an email
Our peer tutors will get feedback to you as soon as they can. You should receive an email from the center letting you know that your appointment has been edited with new documents. That’s your feedback.
