Online Appointments

The University Writing Center offers online consulting services for all clients. Our services are available through WCOnline and must be made at least two hours in advance. Once the client has requested an appointment through WCOnline, a confirmation email with further instructions will be sent.

Online sessions aren't confirmed until clients receive confirmation emails. Appointments made when we're closed may not be confirmed until 9:00 am the next business day. This means you may not be able to have a 9:00 am appointment on a Monday if it was requested Friday after 1:00 pm. Please note that we can only do one online session at a time, so if you request an online session when another is already scheduled, you will be asked to reschedule yours.  

System Requirements

To use this service, you will need:

  • An online appointment through WCOnline

  • Firefox
  • A computer with audio capabilities (speakers and microphone), and a phone backup
  • Your paper, notes, or other writing you wish to work on in an electronic file such as .doc, .docx, .pdf, or .txt.
