Once registered and/or logged in, you will see consultation availabilities for the current semester organized by date, consultant, and time. You can use the PREV WEEK | CURRENT WEEK | NEXT WEEK menu (marked in the image below) or the calendar icon to navigate to your preferred date. Available time is represented by small white boxes; each box represents 15 minutes. Identify an hour-length slot that works for you and select or click on the white box that corresponds with the date and start-time you want to reserve:

Please note: Online Consultations must be scheduled at least 30 minutes prior to the time you would like to start your consultation. All consultations must be scheduled for a full hour, even if you think you will not need a full hour. If you select a starting time that does not have four of the small white boxes (representing 60 minutes) following it or that is less than 30 minutes in the future, the system will not allow you to schedule a consultation for that time. 


Once you have selected a full hour-length consultation slot, a new window with the appointment form will pop-up (you may have to turn off or pause your pop-up blockers). This appointment form is where you can tell us more about your assignment (e.g. course, instructor, type of product, due date, what you’d like to focus on). Use the “Comments” box to share additional information about your assignment and/or needs (e.g. I need help brainstorming, I’m worried about APA formatting, I’d like to practice my speech and get feedback, etc.).

At the bottom of the appointment form, you’ll find “file attachment” boxes. Use these boxes to upload your product (if you have a draft or outline) and any documents you think might help us help you (e.g. assignment prompts/instructions, feedback from your instructor, etc.):
