Welcome! The COM Writing Center has one objective: to help you become a better writer. Our clients often see great improvement in their writing, and they continue to come back time and again. Please review our policies below.
In-person appointments last 45 minutes. You can schedule 1 in-person appointment per day and 2 per week.
Synchronous sessions last 30 minutes. You can schedule 1 hour of synchronous appointments per day and a total of 2 hours of synchronous sessions per week.
You can schedule 1 asynchronous appointment per day and a total of 2 asynchronous sessions per week.
Each student is limited to 1 hour of appointment time per day. You can schedule a combined total of 3 hours of appointments from different schedules each week. (Please note: Asynchronous and in-person appointments count as 1 hour each; synchronous sessions can count as either 30 minutes or 1 hour.)
Scheduling limits for the last week of the semester:
To meet increased demand for appointments, The COM Writing Center limits each student to 1 hour of appointment time for the last week of the semester.
Please be on time for in-person and synchronous appointments. Tutors will wait up to 10 minutes for you to arrive, but if you have not begun the appointment at that point, it will be marked a "no-show."
Please make sure to upload a paper before your asynchronous appointment starts; otherwise, it will be marked a "no-show."
Please do not cancel appointments at the last minute. The system requires you to cancel an appointment at least 2 hours before the start time-- otherwise, it will be marked as a "no-show."
Students with repeated "no-shows" will be restricted from making future appointments. Decisions regarding "no-shows" are at the discretion of the Writing Center.
