Policies on appointments

The following policies are in place to help the Writing Centre run smoothly and support students as effectively as possible.

Policy on number of appointments:
There is no limit to the number of appointments you may book per year; however, you cannot bring the same paper more than twice.  These policies ensure that you retain responsibility for your own work and for your growth as a writer.   Excessive reliance on Writing Centre tutors may be limited at the discretion of the Manager of the Writing Centre.

Policy on lateness:

Appointments start on the hour. If you are late by more than 10 minutes, we give the appointment to another student.

Policy on cancellations and missed appointments:
We appreciate at least 24 hours notice for cancellations. If you miss two appointments, you will be locked out of the online booking system.

To cancel an appointment, use the online booking system.

Remember that you do not need to bring in a completed draft when you come for an appointment. However, if you have not done much thinking about your assignment, you may prefer to reschedule your appointment and/or use the drop-in hours instead. 

Policy on take-home exams: 
If you want to get writing help on a take-home exam, you MUST bring in a signed note of consent from your course instructor. Without the permission of your course instructor, we are unable to assist you with your take-home exam.
