  Making Appointments  

Although you are welcome to drop by the Eberly Writing Center any time during business hours to meet with a tutor, we strongly recommend that you make an appointment in advance. To make an appointment, call the Writing Center at 717-245-1620 or drop by any time we are open.

Appointment information:

  • Appointments are up to an hour long and begin on the half hour.
  • You can schedule up to two appointments per week.
  • You can schedule up to three appointments on any one paper.
  • You can schedule only one appointment per day.
  • If your paper is longer than fifteen pages, you must e-mail it to your tutor 48 hours in advance of your appointment.

Ways to make your appointment successful:

  • Schedule appointments as far before the due date of the paper as possible.
  • Bring your assignment sheet with you.
  • Tell the tutor what concerns you have and what you would like to work on.
  • Be an active participant in the session.
  • Be open to making significant revisions if necessary.
