GWC Consultation Policy

As of Fall 2019

One appointment per day, with a maximum of one in-center OR online appointment per week. If more than one appoinmtent is made per week, the second appointment will be cancelled.
Currently matriculated degree-granting TC students from any department/program can schedule consultations. We serve the right to cancel any appointment made by alumni or non-matriculated students.
Appointments can be scheduled up to two weeks in advance, and are made on a first-come, first-served basis. While online requests are the preferred method of making an appointment, writers may also call, email, or visit the Center. These scheduling guidelines are in place to provide students equal opportunity to access the GWC's services. Appointment availability may vary during peak periods. 
Appointments should be made at least 48 hours in advance. Appointment requests received outside regular GWC hours will be processed the following business day.
Writers must complete an appointment form to confirm their appointment with a Graduate Writing Consultant.
Writers must always bring a printed copy of their work. The Graduate Writing Center does not provide printing services. Writers may also bring their laptops to the consultation to take notes.A consultation appointment can be 30 to 60 minutes. Each appointment consists of a 5 minute summary at the end.  Please plan on working on one text (no more than 6-10 pages) per session.   



Writers must arrive on time. If a student is more than 10 minutes late it will be considered a missed appointmentIf a student contacts the Center to notify us that you are running late, we will hold your appointment for up to 15 minutes.

Cancellation Policy: Writers may login in or call or email the GWC to cancel their appointment. Cancellations must be made 24 hours in advance. If a writer has not canceled the appointment within this time frame, it will be considered a missed appointment. 

Writers who miss two appointments in a semester without 24-hour advance notice will no longer be able to reserve sessions in advance for the duration of that term. Walk-in appointments will still be available on an as-available basis. Printed copies are also required at walk-in appointments.
