Walk-In Hours & Appointments

The Writing Center will move to all online consultations until further notice. Consultations will be conducted via Zoom and Skype.


For the spring 2021 semester, users may request an appointment for any time during the Writing Center's available hours.  In addition, Sundays from 12pm to 6pm will be reserved exclusively for MCV campus students.


If students have pre-existing in-person appointments, the Writing Center will change them to online. We will contact students with details on how to navigate the online consultations. We encourage faculty  to continue to recommend utilizing the Writing Center, especially as students transition to online class formats. Faculty should email the Writing Center with any questions.
