Schedule an Appointment

Schedule an appointment at the Writing Center. Please read the following before making an appointment:

  • All appointments begin at 10 minutes past the hour and last a maximum of 50 minutes.  Students who fail to show up by 15 minutes past the hour will be considered no-shows.
  • To cancel an appointment more than 24 hours prior to your scheduled time, use our scheduling system.  To cancel with less than 24 hours before your appointment, please call us or email writing@wustl.edu.
  • To get on the wait-list for an appointment, simply click on the small clock icon next to the dates for which you would like to be on the wait-list.  You will receive an automated email notifying you of any appointments that become available.
  • Graduate students should sign up with one of our senior or graduate tutors (these are indicated on the schedule).
  • Anyone working on application materials should sign up with one of our senior or graduate tutors (these are indicated on the schedule).
  • If you are out of town, we are happy to work with you online.  In the appointment screen, select “Meet Online.”  After you click “Save Appointment,” the confirmation screen will give you the option to attach a draft.  If you do not have one now, you can email your draft to us later at writing@wustl.edu.  At the time of your appointment, log back into our schedule, click on your appointment, and click on “Start or Join Conversation” to use WCOnline’s built-in video chat application.  PLEASE NOTE:  This is NOT a drop-off service!  At the time of your appointment, you will have a real time video session with your tutor.
  • If you are working on a take-home exam, you may make your appointment as normal, but we will need written permission from your instructor if it is not explicitly stated on the course syllabus or the exam prompt.  Instructors should email writing@wustl.edu before the time of your appointment.

Although we believe a face-to-face conversation is the best way for us to support writers, we also know scheduling a tutorial during our open hours can be challenging for some students, particularly for University College students with other obligations during the day. In order to make our services more accessible, we are piloting an Email Tutoring option. Starting in Spring 2019, University College students working on coursework will be able to submit drafts online, and one of our tutors will read it carefully and respond with thoughtful, constructive feedback within three business days. If you are a University College student and would like to submit a draft, please click here (coming Spring 2019).
