Using Our Appointment System


We use an appointment management system called WCOnline. WCOnline was created specifically for writing labs and writing centers. This system does not pull information from the university databases. Therefore, this requires that you register for an account before using our services. 

Register with an email that you will use as we will send appointment confirmations and instructions for your appointment.

  • Creating An Account
    To make an appointment in our appointment system, you must first create an account.
    1. Click here to access WCOnline, our appointment system.
    2. At the top of the sign-in box, select "Click here to register."
    3. You will subsequently be taken to the "Create a New Account" screen.
    4. Follow the prompts to create your new account. You will only need to follow these steps once.

    After these steps are completed and you are registered within our system, you can easily access the appointment system by signing in with your registered email and password.

  • Making An Appointment

    To make an appointment, enter our appointment system by clicking one of the 'Make an Appointment' buttons on our website.

    1. Within the appointment system, you will see the date ranges at the top of the page. 
    2. Read the information panel thoroughly before proceeding to scheduling your appointment. This panel provides important information. 
    3. Appointment boxes are color-coded. White boxes indicate available times. Purple and gray boxes indicate unavailable times. Select a white box at the time that best works with your schedule.
    4. Fill out the form detailing your assignment, where you are in the writing process, and what you would like to work on in that appointment.
    5. Once you have completed this, click "Save Appointment."
