Appointment Policies

Scheduling Appointments

A student may schedule only two appointments each for writing and tutoring in a single week unless the student has special permission from the Director of the Center for Writing, Learning, and Teaching. If we have openings, a student who has already had two appointments may take an appointment on a "drop-in" basis or through the wait-list.

Students may not schedule two or more consecutive appointments; that is, you are welcome to schedule two appointments during a week, but those cannot be in a single two-hour block.

Holding Appointments

We can only hold your appointments for 10 minutes unless you let us know in advance that you’re going to be late. After 10 minutes, we'll call the first person on the wait list.

Missed Appointments

If you are a "no show" for more than two appointments in a semester, you may not be able to make appointments in advance during our busiest times.

If you cannot make an appointment, call us (253.879.3404) or send us an email ( at least three hours in advance.

Alumni Appointments

Current University of Puget Sound students have priority for appointments, but University of Puget Sound alumni are welcome to make appointments at the CWLT to work with a faculty member on refining a personal statement or other materials for post-graduate fellowship and scholarship applications.

Take-Home Exams

We do not review take-home exams except in special circumstances.
