Scheduling a Session

  • The preferred way to schedule or cancel a session is through the campus Compass Writing Center portal in Bluepoint. You may try calling to schedule or cancel a session but we are often unable to answer our phone.
  • Sessions are usually 25 minutes long, and you have the option to sign up for two consecutive sessions.

Suggestions

  • The schedule tends to fill up quickly, so try to schedule sessions as far in advance as possible.
  • If possible, try to bring as much information about the writing project as possible: any outlines and/or brainstorming, the assignment, a professor's written comments and/or expectations, peer responses, and/or anything else that you think might be of interest.
  • Our space has WiFi access and computers with full access.

Cancellations

The Writing Center has a STRICT cancellation/no-show policy:

  • If you come to the Writing Center and erase your name, this is not a "no-show." A "no-show" occurs when we have no in-person notification of your inability to be present.
  • If we record two "no-shows," then you will lose Writing Center privileges for one month, and all sessions you may have already scheduled would be cancelled.
  • Any missed hour-long session counts as two half hour sessions, and thus two "no-shows."
  • We understand that the people we serve are very busy. At the same time, please be aware that our waiting lists are often long: the session that you miss would be gladly taken by another student.
