Making an Appointment

While viewing the schedule, available appointment slots will appear as three small white blocks. Click on the left-most block to reserve your 45 minute appointment. Already reserved appointment slots will appear as colored blocks, these are no longer available.

Important Notes:

  • Writing Clinic appointments are limited to six (6) per term.
  • Speaking Clinic appointments are limited to five (5) per term.
  • International scholars are limited to one (1) appointment per clinic per term.
  • If appointment times are open, same-day drop-in sessions are often available for all graduate students and scholars on a first-come first-served basis.
  • Appointments can be made up to one week in advance.
  • Please be sure to write down and REMEMBER your WCOnline password as you will need it to log in for EVERY appointment.

Cancellation: If you cannot attend a Studio appointment, you need to cancel at least 12 hours in advance. This makes it possible for another student to make use of Clinic time. If you cannot provide this notice, then you need to appear for your appointment. If you do not appear it will be counted as a no-show, and after 2 no-shows your account will be de-activated for the semester.
