Appointment Policies (new as of January 2012)
- You may make only two half-hour appointments per week.
- If you're enrolled in 1000- or 2000- level courses, such as composition (ENG 1400), you may make only one half-hour appointment on any given day.
- If you meet one of the following conditions below, however, you may schedule a one-hour appointment by signing up for two half-hour sessions back-to-back with the same tutor:
Any one-hour appointment will count as your two allotted sessions for that week. You may not sign up for non-consecutive appointments.
- You're a student in a 3000-,4000-, or graduate-level course AND have a rough draft that is 8 pages or longer (please do not schedule one-hour appointments for brainstorming sessions or outlining assistance; likewise, don't use this service for drafts shorter than 8 pages, even if the paper is eventually going to be longer);
- You're a student in LIT 2090, Literary Analysis;
- You're a student whose first language is not English;
- You're a student who self-identifies with the Writing Center Director, Mrs. Moore, as having a learning disability
In situations where the drafts are 8 pages or longer, writers may also email their papers directly to their tutors at least 48 hours in advance of the appointment. If the tutors can, they will review the papers prior to the appointment in order to save time in the session itself.
- Finally, once you make an appointment on the online schedule, no one else can access that time, so please be considerate of your fellow students and the writing center tutors by showing up for your appointments and being on time. If you realize you cannot come for an appointment you've scheduled, be sure to delete that appointment so that another student may access our services. Students who miss more than two appointments will receive a warning via email; students who miss more than three appointments per semester will be banned from using the center's services for an entire semester.
