Make an Appointment

  1. All appointments are 30 minutes.
  2. Students may schedule only one (1) appointment per day for a maximum of 30 minutes of tutoring appointments per day. If a student requires additional help, he or she will be treated as a walk-in. Appointments must be made, in most instances, 24 hours before the desired appointment time. Student with proof of disability accommodation will receive 1 hour appointments.
  3. If a student is 5 minutes late for an appointment, the student forfeits the tutorial session, and the student will be treated as a walk-in.
  4. Authors of papers must be present for the tutoring session. Tutors will not work with a student who brings someone else's essay, nor will they proofread, edit, or fix a paper that has been dropped off.


If a student makes an appointment and fails to show after 5 minutes without advance notification, they receive a 1st strike (warning).

On the second no-show 2nd strike, they are not eligible to make appointments for the rest of the term. The ability to make appointments will be restored the following term.

Making an appointment by email:

To make an appointment, email with the time, date, subject, and what you need to work on (e.g., thesis, organization, structure, grammar, development, brainstorming, citation, or other). Note that the WRC only checks emails during normal operating hours: Monday-Thursday, 9-5 and Friday, 9-1.
