Welcome to The COM Writing Center!  

We're offering 3 types of appointments this fall: in-person, asynchronous, and synchronous. Please select the correct schedule for the appointment type you want:

In-person appointments are 45 minutes long and take place at The COM Writing Center. Masks are required at all times.

If you book an asynchronous appointment, you’ll upload your paper in advance and receive written feedback sometime on the day of your appointment. 

A synchronous appointment is an online tutoring session in real time. You'll discuss your writing, ask questions, and receive live feedback for either 30 or 60 minutes.  

PLEASE NOTE: You can now book appointments through December 10th, which is the last day we're open in 2021.  We'll return in February.

If you have any questions, please email us at

Thank you for your patience and flexibility at this time. Stay safe and be well!
