We value every Writers’ Center appointment and hope students will use our services often. However, we do ask you not to schedule more than two appointments in one day or three appointments in one week. This will allow you time to process and implement the feedback you receive from our tutors. If you need more frequent writing support, please consider signing up for WP112.
In the same spirit as the appointment limits, we also ask you to not book back-to-back sessions. You can do a lot in an hour, which is already a longer session than many peer-to-peer tutoring programs offer, and our tutors are trained to give you substantial feedback over the course of the hour. If you think you need to continue working with a tutor on a piece of writing, please make a second appointment that does not back up to the first.
Rescheduling or Canceling Appointments
If you need to reschedule or cancel your appointment, please do so at least 4 hours prior to your scheduled session. If you need to cancel an appointment, you can do so from the appointment page on our website. Please make sure to cancel in advance so that another student may take the time slot.
We sympathize with hectic schedules, but we cannot condone missed appointments. A missed appointment is a missed opportunity for another student. Therefore, we have a one-miss grief policy. We will send you an email whenever you miss an appointment. If you miss appointments repeatedly without notice, you may lose your scheduling privileges.
