Making an Appointment

To book an appointment with a writing tutor, students should check the Writing Center Appointment Calendar for available times. Appointments can be booked directly from the calendar.

Once an appointment is booked, a Google Calendar invite with a Zoom link will be sent to your email. The appointment will also appear on your Google Calendar. Please follow the guidelines below:

  • Use the Zoom link in the appointment description to access the meeting. When you click the link, you will be placed in a waiting room until your tutor is ready.
  • Please arrive at your appointment on time. Tutors will wait up to 15 minutes for students to arrive late. After that point, the timeslot will become available to other students.
  • If you need to cancel an appointment, you can do so by deleting the appointment from your Google Calendar or emailing writingcenter@stcc.edu. Please give us as much advanced notice as possible when cancelling.
  • Appointments are one hour long. Please do not book back-to-back time slots.

At the time of your appointment, please have the following:

  • The assignment that needs support
  • Your professor’s name and course code
  • An idea of what you need help with (organizing, developing, planning, etc.)
