Appointment Options

  • face to face
    Face to face appointments should be scheduled by calling us at 517-483-1907, by popping into our chat window (on the "Contact Us" page) or by stopping by the Writing Center in A&S 2214 . Though the Writing Center offers walk-in assistance when appointments are not filled, this assistance is very limited due to student demand. Therefore, we STRONGLY ENCOURAGE students to plan ahead and to make appointments. Appointments can be scheduled up to one week in advance.
  • online
    Online assistance is provided via a D2L chat room and must be scheduled in advance. Please visit our "Online Assistance" page for more information or click the button below and fill out our online appointment request form. We will do our best to process your request as quickly as possible. However, due to high demand, we ask that you give us up to 48 hours to respond.

    Fifty minutes is often not enough time to address everything. Repeat visits may be necessary to polish your writing. The goal of the Writing Center is to help you become a better writer, not just to perfect a particular paper.

  • Be prepared to take an active role in your sessions. Let the writing assistant know what concerns you most about your paper and what you'd like to focus on.
  • Plan ahead. Schedule appointments in advance in order to be guaranteed assistance.
