Welcome to the Writing Center's online scheduling program, WCONLINE! 

The Writing Center offers face-to-face tutoring on campus and online tutoring for distance students who are unable to work with a tutor in person. 

If this is your first time accessing the Writing Center calendar, click the blue "Register for an account" link to the left side of the screen and follow the quick process for creating your Writing Center account. If you have questions, email, and we'll respond to you as soon as we can.


Please note that the Writing Center holds on-campus appointments in two locations. Daytime appointments (9 a.m. to 5 p.m.) are held in the main Writing Center on the third floor of the Commons. Evening appointments (6 p.m. to 8 p.m.) are held in the U of I Library, on the second floor.



Getting Help from the Writing Center...

If you are an on-campus student, we encourage you to visit us in the Writing Center in person. On campus, writers work with tutors one-to-one in 30- or 60-minute tutorial sessions. Sessions can focus on understanding an assignment sheet, planning an essay, developing ideas, revising work through the process of reading a draft together, or addressing other writing concerns. Tutors strive to help writers communicate their unique ideas as clearly as possible and in their distinct voice. Writers should come to appointments prepared with their writing project’s assignment sheet, any notes or drafts they’ve written toward the project, and a readiness to work with their tutor.

If you are enrolled in online courses and cannot come to campus, the Writing Center offers two forms of online tutoring:

  • Real-Time Tutoring: Using WC Online’s audio-visual, instant-messaging, and document-sharing tools, writers work with tutors in 30- or 60-minute sessions that are designed to be as much like our face-to-face tutorial sessions as possible.

  • e-Tutoring: Writers submit up to 8 double-spaced pages (or 2,000 words) of their work to receive written feedback from Writing Center tutors. Feedback includes reader response, questions, and suggestions. Writers are encouraged to follow-up written feedback with a real-time tutoring session to clarify questions or continue the discussion. Please schedule e-Tutoring appointments in 60-minute increments. During this time, the tutor will read and respond to your work. You will receive the feedback soon after the appointment.
