Using the Online Scheduler

Schedule an appointment online

Registering (for first-time users)

On the log-in page, click the “Click here to register” link. Complete the registration form.  All fields are required. Your log-in name must be your BU e-mail address, but you may choose any password you like.  For your security, we recommend that you not use your Kerberos password. When you are finished, click “Register.”

Logging In

Log in using your BU e-mail address and the password you chose.  If a center staff member registered you, your temporary password is “student.”

Scheduling Appointments

1.    Look at the consultant names listed on the left side of the page. Next to each name you will see a list of course levels. Be careful to sign up for an appointment with a consultant who has your course level listed next to their name. For example, a WR 097 student should sign up only with consultants who have “WR 097” listed next to their names. If you sign up for a consultant who is not able to tutor for your class level, your appointment will be moved to an appropriate consultant if one is available at the same time or cancelled if one is not available. You can use the “Limit To” drop-down box at the top of the page to only show WR097 or WR098 writing consultants.

2.    Click on a white square to open an appointment time for scheduling. In the pop-up window, fill in the required information. Note the location of your appointment, listed at the top of the pop-up window. Click “Save Appointment.”

Waiting List

If all appointments are filled, click on the “clock” icon next to the date and the day of the week to add your name to the Waiting List. We will contact you if an appointment time on that day becomes available.

Viewing Your Scheduled Appointments

To view a list of all your scheduled appointments, click on “Control Panel” in the upper left corner of the schedule page. Your appointments will be listed in the “My Appointments” section.

Canceling Appointments

1.    Click on the appointment you wish to cancel.

2.    Click the “Cancel This Appointment” box at the bottom of the pop-up window. (This option is only available 9+ hours ahead of the appointment time).

Please respect our resources and your fellow students by cancelling at least a day before before your appointment. If you cancel the same day as your appointment, you will receive a warning notice. If you receive a second warning notice, you will not be permitted to return to the CAS Center for Writing during the current semester.

Changing Your Password

To change your password, click on “My Control Panel” in the upper left corner of the schedule page. Next, click “Update My Profile & Password.”

If you need assistance or have any questions, please call our staff at 617-358-1500 or visit the CAS  Center for Writing at 100 Bay State Road, 3rd Floor.
