Make an Appointment

Services are by appointment only, but setting your own appointment is easy!

  • We use the Scheduler feature in Canvas, so the first thing you will need to do is add the Writing Lab to your list of Canvas courses. You can do this by clicking the “Access Virtual Writing Lab” button below. (You may be prompted to log into Canvas.)
  • Next, in Canvas, click on “Calendar,” then click “Scheduler” in the upper right-hand corner.
  • The Scheduler has an appointment group called “Tutor Availability.” When you click this, you will see a list of available dates and times.
  • Click the time that works best for you and click “Reserve.” You can also leave a comment for the tutor about the assignment with which you need help.

If you need any help with the appointment process, just stop by the lab in G-219 or email us at

We ask that you make your appointment at least 24-48 hours in advance so that we can make sure a faculty member will be able to assist you. When you arrive at your appointment, be sure you have any instructions for the assignment (so that we know what you are supposed to be doing!), and a hard copy of your work that you do not mind writing on. The Writing Lab is not a proofreading service; we are here to help you improve your own writing. The ultimate responsibility for your grade lies with you!
