Appointments and Walk-ins

Any DU student, faculty, or staff member may make an appointment for a consultation by calling us at 303-871-7456. Students may also make appointments by going to PioneerWeb, clicking on the "MyWeb" tab, expanding the "Student" folder, selecting "Writing Center," and click on "Make an Appointment." We will also see writers on a walk-in basis if a consultant is available.

Consultations begin on the hour and typically last about 45 minutes. Unless you are working on a multimodal project, we prefer that you bring in a printed copy of your work. We reserve the right to cancel your appointment if you do not show up within 10 minutes of your scheduled appointment time.

Online Appointments

If you are an online student, you may schedule online appointments through myWeb. If you are an athlete on the road or a student studying abroad, please call 303-871-7456 and ask for an online consultation. When you schedule an online appointment, an appointment confirmation and set of instructions will be sent to your email address. Please read them carefully.

Center Policies and Procedures

There are a few Writing Center policies to be aware of as you schedule your appointments:

  • You can meet with a Writing Center consultant once per day per writing project, but not more than once per day for each project.
  • Consultations will not be conducted less than two hours before an assignment is due (so if your paper is due at 6 pm, you can meet with us at 4 pm but no later than that).
  • We're happy to take brief questions during "happy hour" regardless of when your paper is due.
  • For a writing project less than 15 pages in length, you can have a total of three consultations; we're flexible on how many appointments you can have if your paper is longer than 15 pages, but we ask that you start by making two appointments and then assess with your consultant whether you need more.

Confidentiality

Your visit to the Writing Center remains confidential unless you give us permission to send a note to your instructor. Our notes describe your work with the consultant during the consultation. We do not evaluate you or your work in any way.
