To make an appointment (instructions also viewable on this page):

  • First-time users of WC Online must register for a free account. 
  • Log in and select the appropriate schedule. 
  • Change the week as desired. Appointments may be made up to 7 days in advance.
  • Appointments are listed in Eastern time. Available times are shown in white boxes. Click on the desired time and complete all requested information. Use the drop-down boxes to adjust the appointment length (if available). Use the "Waiting List" feature if desired.  
  • Attach your draft and/or assignment when you make your appointment, if possible. 
  • Click “Create Appointment.” 
  • Create an alert for the appointment in your calendar or planner.
  • Read the confirmation and reminder emails you receive.

When it’s time for your appointment:

  • A few minutes before your appointment, log in here, open the schedule, click on your appointment slot, and click "Start or Join Consultation." Be sure to allow camera and microphone access and enable pop-ups from WCOnline.

Cancel in advance if you cannot make it:

If you cannot make it to your appointment, kindly cancel in advance. Not showing up prevents other students from getting help at a time you booked but didn’t use. Log in, click on your appointment box, and click “Cancel Appointment.” Students who miss more than 3 appointments without canceling ahead of time will not be able to continue to make appointments.
