One-on-one appointments with Writing Consultants

The CAS Writing Center offers one-on-one appointments free of charge to students with papers from Writing Program courses (CAS WR courses) and most other courses that fulfill the First-Year Writing and Writing, Research, & Inquiry Hub units

To make an appointment for assistance with an assignment from of the courses listed above, students can create a free account and sign up at a time that works for them using our online scheduling system:

What to Know Before you Book an Appointment

Please review our full list of policies before coming to your first appointment.

Both in-person and remote appointments are available. In-person appointments take place in the Writers’ Studio on the 3rd floor of 100 Bay State Road. Remote appointments are conducted via video chat, and students can attend these from any quiet, private location of their choosing. Students can select which type of appointment they prefer using our online scheduling system. 

Be sure to sign up with the consultant specializing in your class level. For example, if you are enrolled in WR 111, sign up only with those consultants next to whose names you see a (WR 111) designation. 

Students can make one appointment per week. Due to the high demand for services, we encourage you to reserve appointments in advance whenever possible.

If you are looking for help with a non-WR CAS paper, please check this list of discipline-specific writing tutorsFor help with non-CAS assignments, or with career-related, technical, and professional writing, or papers for other BU courses, please check out the many other forms of writing support for students at BU. 

Please note that, during the Spring 2024 semester, the CAS Writing Center will not be able to offer same-day drop-in appointments for CAS courses due to administrative staffing shortages. We apologize for any inconvenience, and we encourage students to visit the link above for other on-campus resources.
