Missed Appointments

If you are unable to make your appointment, please call the Writing Center at (828) 476-8644 and let us know.  An appointment is considered a no call/no show at 10 minutes after the hour, and you will not be permitted to have another session that day; you may have another session on any other day. Three missed appointments in a semester will result in a suspension of UWC appointment privileges for the remainder of that semester. You will still be allowed to have sessions as a walk-in client.


When the university closes or cancels classes, the writing center closes, too.
