The UWC is OPEN all summer!

The UWC is open NOW for online consulting sessions.

Check the UWC's appointment scheduler for our summer hours and to schedule your online session. Our professional writing consultants are ready to assist you with your academic, professional, and personal writing projects. See below for more information about how you can plan for your online session(s).

Try UWC Online Consulting

The UWC's experienced online consultants can help you at any stage of your writing project. If it's your first UWC session, or if it's your first online UWC session, or if you want to make your UWC session better, check out our Make an Appointment page.

To make an appointment, click on an open white box in the UWC Scheduler, notice that the "Yes. Schedule Online appointment" option is already checked, and enter your information. A few minutes before your session starts, log back in, click on your session, and then click on "START OR JOIN ONLINE CONSULTATION." Online sessions work better when we can talk, and even better when we can see each other, so make sure you have your microphone and camera options enabled.
