Writing Center Tutors aim to provide thorough feedback. Consider the following policies when determining the length of your appointment.
We’re able to work on:
Writing Center Tutors need at least 1 hour for Written Feedback, Online Realtime and Screencast Video Feedback appointments.
If you want your tutor to review a specific part of your paper (e.g. pages 8–15 in a 20-page draft for a one-hour appointment), you’ll need to indicate the page range when you make your appointment. Otherwise, the tutor will start their review at the beginning of your document.
The last 5–10 minutes of every appointment will be used to allow time for tutors to write appointment letters and transition between appointments. As a writer, you will receive an appointment letter via email after every appointment so that you have a summary of your appointment as well as a reminder of possible next steps for your writing process.
When scheduling your appointment, you will also have the option to have a copy of your appointment letter sent to your instructor or any third party you request. Letters will be sent only at a writer’s request. If you wish for a copy of your letter to be sent to your instructor, advisor, or any third party, please include their name and email address in the respective “Instructor or Third Party” boxes when making your appointment.
Appointment scheduling policies may change during final exam weeks. These changes will be announced on the log-in page of WCOnline if applicable.
