How to Schedule and Prepare for an Appointment

  • Review our Policies and Locations pages to make sure you book the right appointment for you.

  • Visit uga.mywconline.com. If you have never booked an appointment before, please register to create an account.
  • Log into the appointment page. At the top, center of the page, you'll find a drop-down menu to change the locations offered. Please book an available appointment (a white block of time) and fill out the appointment questionnaire. If you woud like to make a 45-minute appointment, use the drop-down menu to change the appointment end time. Though WConline will now show your appointment as being an hour long, please know your consultant will need to end the appointment after 45 minutes. (Unable to find an appointment? Email us at WritingCenter@uga.edu. We can't promise we can make something work, but knowing about such issues can help us improve staffing and scheduling in the future!)

  • Show up a few minutes early so that we can begin the appointment on time.

  • Bring your notes or draft and a copy of the assignment sheet. If your draft is on a laptop, that is fine.

  • If you have specific questions or concerns about your work, write them down before your appointment.

  • Remember, consultants don't proofread entire papers—but they are very good at helping you learn to produce stronger writing.

Locations

The University of Georgia is proud to offer writing help through our main location and four satellite locations in addition to online feedback. Please familiarize yourself with the locations and their offered services to determine which location is right for your appointment. Unless otherwise noted, we strongly suggest making an appointment in advance, as we are not usually able to accommodate walk-ins. Make an appointment at uga.mywconline.com

Online Feedback

If you make an appointment using this schedule, you will not actually meet with a consultant. Instead, you will need to attach a Word doc containing your current draft (up to 5 pgs) when you make an appointment, and you can expect to receive feedback from your consultant via email by the end of your scheduled appointment time. Requests for Online Feedback must be submitted at least 48 hours in advance.
