Waitlist: How To Drop-In

Appointments may be booked by students writing papers for one of the Core course curricula (Humanities, Social Sciences, Civilizations, or Biology).

Students without an appointment or students writing for other courses can drop in on the day they’d like to be seen and place themselves on the waitlist

When You Arrive: Check In to the Waitlist

To see a Writing Tutor without an appointment, check in when you arrive, which will place you on the waitlist. 

Check in here.
This check-in will ask you some questions about who you are and what you're working on. You can choose a particular Writing Tutor by selecting their cubicle (see schedule), or you can choose to work with Any Tutor. 

When you check in, we encourage you to enable SMS notifications by entering your phone number so that you do not miss your turn if you need to step out of the waiting area to print a paper or grab a snack. 

No-Show Policy

It is important to remain near the cubicles while you wait. If you are not present when the Writing Tutor calls your name, the Tutor will wait five minutes. If you miss your turn, you will be removed from the waitlist. You can either check in again to place yourself back on the waitlist, or you can book an appointment for the following day.
