How do I make an appointment?

  • Email us at writers [at] hawaii [dot] edu.

If you need to reschedule* your appointment, please call or email us with as much advance notice as possible, so we can open the time slot for other students to use. 

What do I need for my session?

  • Your ideas, questions, and any drafts, notes, or outlines you have.
  • Your assignment materials.

How often can I meet with a writing consultant?

Students can meet with a writing consultant in individual sessions for each of their Leeward CC classes as follows:

  • up to two hours per week;
  • up to one hour per day (scheduling more than one hour on the same day may be permissible if space is available and a minimum of three hours between sessions is scheduled to allow for independent work).

*If you need to cancel your appointment, you can do so yourself online up to twenty-four (24) hours prior to your appointment time. After that, you can email us to cancel or reschedule. Please provide at least four (4) hours advance notice if you need to cancel, so we can make the time slot available to other students.

If you miss your appointment or cancel it without at least four (4) hours advance notice, your absence will be noted on the online scheduling software as a "missed" appointment.  Students with three "missed" appointments will need to email the Writing Center for help in making appointments.
