Schedule an Appointment

The Writing Center is Online during the COVID-19 CRISIS: At 3PM on Mach 16, the Kresge Library where we are housed was closed due to COVID-19. All writing center services will remain online until further notice.

Real-Time (Synchronous) Consultation: To schedule a synchronous (real time) online appointment, click here. Consultants are available for one-hour appointments on the following days/times:
  • Monday-Thursday: 9AM-8PM 

Virtual Help Desk for Quick Questions: If you have a quick question about documentation or other matters, you also can visit our Virtual Help Desk, which is staffed for a few hours each day. If we are not live, you can leave your question, and a consultant will get back to you within 24 hours, generally sooner.

How to Schedule an Appointment: The Oakland University Writing Center uses WCOnline, a user friendly scheduling program that allows users to see the next available appointment, to search by day/time, and to add themselves to a wait list. If you are using it for the first time, we have created a Video Tutorial and a Help Guide. When you visit the scheduler, always look at the announcements, which give updates about our services that include when the Virtual Help Desk is live and if we are offering additional services, such as webinars.
