Scheduling an Appointment and Appointment Policies


Appointments can be made by creating an account. We ask that you remember your account username and password for future appointments. If not, you can always reset your username and password.            

You can also book appointments by calling the University Writing Center: 231-591-2534. If you choose to book an appointment over the phone, and have not already set up an account, our clerical staff will set up an initial account for you. 

Our scheduling policies are as follows: 

  • You can choose between a half hour or a full hour. Typically, our writing consultants can assist you with 5-7 pages per half hour.
  • During high volume visitation times, we allow up to only an hour of consultations per day, per client.
  • If you cannot attend your appointment, please cancel your appointment within 24 hours. If you miss three appointments (without cancellation w/in 24 hours), you will no longer be able to use our services during this semester.
  • For the writing consultation process, we encourage you to bring in hard copies of your writing.
  • If you are ten minutes late to an appointment, you will be considered a no-show and your appointment will be canceled. 
  • Clients cannot book appointments for online synchronous writing consultation unless enrolled in an online program or an offsite program.
