Online Appointments

At your appointment time, log in to the scheduler, click on your appointment box, then click on the Zoom link.

To get the most out of your session, please have your assignment prompt and whatever you've written so far open on your desktop.

Plan to use a device with a screen large enough to see documents.

In-Person Appointments

Please bring with you the assignment prompt and two hard-copies of whatever you've written so far or upload your draft through your appointment screen when you log in to the scheduler.
