Consultation Policies
  1. Because our goal is to help you become an independent writer:

    • Learners are required to submit their writing in a document 24 hours prior to the appointment
    • If a document isn't submitted 24 hours prior to the appointment, the appointment will be canceled by the consultant and will need to be rescheduled
    • We don’t provide more than 3 sessions per writing project
    • We will only meet about a writing project once per day
    • We will only provide consultations about take-home exams if your instructor provides us with written consent
    • Consultations must take place at least 24 hours before your assignment is due (unless the consultation is a follow-up)
    • All consultations must take place at least 2 hours before your assignment is due; no exceptions.
  2. Consultation records are confidential. We only email notes to instructors at the learner’s request. These notes are our only communication with instructors about our consultations.
  3. If you cancel or do not show up to scheduled appointments more than once, you may be prohibited from making future appointments at the OWC.
