All students may create appointments with the Writing Center using our online scheduling system. If you are a multilingual or international student and would like to receive regular support on a weekly basis throughout the semester, you may enroll in the English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) Opt-in Program.
When you enroll in the ESOL opt-in program, you commit to improving your writing by meeting with the same consultant once each week (or two consultants twice each week). In return for this commitment, the Writing Center helps coordinate your appointment schedule and may, in some cases, increase the number of allowed appointments each term.
Continuity: Students meet with the same consultant each week. This enables both the student and consultants to build on what they have worked on in previous sessions. Most students opt for one session each week (about 15 appointments per semester); students may request two appointments per week (30 appointments per semester).
When you apply, you will determine a regular day and time to meet with your consultant. The Writing Center sets up the appointments at the beginning of the semester to ensure you are able to meet with the same one or two consultants throughout the term. We are happy to admit students to the program up to mid-term, or as long as the Writing Center schedule allows for the consistent booking of an Opt-in consultant. You can read the program policies here.
