Book An Appointment
Humanities, Social Sciences and Civilizations Core students can book a Writing Tutor appointment in advance. Appointments are released every Friday for the coming week, and appointments close for booking one hour before the appointment start time.
The Writing Tutors are located on the 3rd Floor of Harper Memorial Library, in the Cathey North Reading Room.

If you prefer to work with a particular Writing Tutor, consult the schedule. All Writing Tutors can work on papers from any of the Core curricula.
If no appointments are available, you can put your name on the drop-in waitlist (see How To Drop-In).
When You Arrive: Check In
Before your appointment starts, you need to check in at this link, which is also available in your appointment reminder email. You'll be asked a few brief questions about who you are and what you're working on. (The check-in window starts 30 minutes before your appointment.)
Once you check in, have a seat and the Writing Tutor will call your name when they are ready to begin.
If you do not arrive for your appointment within 5 minutes of the start time, your appointment will be cancelled. If your appointment is cancelled, you can put yourself on the waitlist (see How To Drop-In), or book an appointment for the following day.
