THE UCWbL—WE'RE FOR EVERYONE
IMPORTANT APPOINTMENT POLICIES
Online realtime appointments and conversation partner appointments are marked as "missed" if you do
not cancel within 10 minutes after the start of the appointment.
Written feedback appointments are marked as "missed" if you have
not uploaded a draft by the start of your appointment.
Cancel your appointment as soon as possible so that other writers
may use that time.
If you have 3 "missed" appointments, your account will be
deactivated and you can only use the Writing Center
on a walk-in basis.
Online appointments are 25, 50, 80, or 110 minutes long.
Appointments appear in 30-minute blocks of time and tutors use
the last 10 minutes (or 5 minutes for 30 minute appointments) of
each appointment to write an appointment summary letter.
Written feedback appointments are 60, 90, or 120 minutes long.
Across all appointment types, tutors can give feedback on up to
4 double-spaced pages per 25 minutes (8 per 50, 12 per 90, 16 per 120).
