--D203 In-house Schedule

(2 appointments per week/3 during summer sessions)

In-house Appointment Guidelines

  • Students may schedule two in-house 1/2 hr. appointments per week
  • Students may schedule only one 1/2 hr. appointment per day
  • Writers with drafts of five or more pages or students with documented special needs may schedule a 1 hr. appointment with the Writing Center manager's permission
  • To avoid No-Show penalties, students must log into www.mywco.com/springcreekwc and cancel (see the bottom of appointment form) at least one hour prior to their scheduled appointment

Writers should bring the following items (if applicable) to each consultation

  • One typed hard copy of the draft
  • A copy of the assignment, prompt, and/or rubric

For reasons of liability, the Center discourages parents from bringing their children to appointments.  Please make an online VirtualMuse appointment instead.

--OWL VirtualMuse

  • Online, real time appointments--students must have a microphone or headset with a microphone to schedule a VirtualMuse appointment

--OWL DropBox: Upload drafts to earliest available time blocks immediately

  • eTutor -- papers returned on or before day two at midnight with remarks in Track Changes
  • DropBox is not a visual online consultation system.  For a real time appointment with audio and video, access the VirtualMuse schedule on this website
  • DropBox can offer only a certain number of time blocks based on consultant availability. For example: If on Monday a student finds the first open slot is on Wednesday because both Monday and Tuesday time blocks are reserved, the two day turnaround count down begins on that Wednesday where the essay has been submitted, not on the Monday it was uploaded)
  • Papers are reviewed and returned in the order they are uploaded, first-come-first-served. Choose the earliest time block and day available
