Prepare for your appointment

  • Within the online booking system (WCOnline), upload a copy of your assignment and your instructor's guidelines.
  • Choose the topic on which you want to focus.
  • Allow time after your appointment to revise your essay.

Cancellation policy and no-shows

  • Cancel at least 30 minutes before your appointment using the same online booking system or email the writing consultant.
  • A missed, un-cancelled appointment is considered a no-show.
  • If you accumulate more than two no-shows, we may require you to submit your essays to WriteAway rather than booking an in-person appointment.
