The Chicago Writing Center offers three appointment options:
Our online scheduling is done through WCONLINE. Register an account with your TCSPP email address, then log in using your myChicagoSchool credentials. If you need help using WCONLINE, email
In addition to feedback on writing, we also offer one-on-one and small group statistics coaching, as well as Conversation Partners for English language learners. These services can be accessed through our calendar at the "Schedule Appointment/Submit Work" link above. If you would like to schedule recurring appointments with a specific coach, email us!
Yes! You can attach your file to the appointment through our online calendar at any point up to the appointment start time. We will try to send you a reminder the day of your appointment if we do not yet see a file attached. Appointments will be canceled if no file is uploaded by 10 minutes after the appointment start time.
Your writing or statistics coach will wait for you until 10 minutes after the start of the appointment then cancel the appointment. If you know you are late but are planning to attend, contact [email protected] to let us know. Otherwise, please visit our calendar to reschedule for a later time.
During on-campus semesters, we offer private room testing appointments, which can be booked through our calendar at the "Schedule Appointment/Submit Work" link above. Once you have booked a time, please coordinate with your instructor to provide testing materials to the Writing Center ahead of your proctoring appointment.
We do not copyedit full dissertations (this service is provided by Dissertation Processing), but we do accept dissertation chapters for in-person or written feedback appointments of up to 1.5 hours in length. Please indicate what you would like the coach to focus on (e.g. organization, APA formatting check), as the focus of your appointment can affect how much content can be reviewed in 1.5 hours. If you would like your full dissertation read by the Writing Center, plan on multiple appointments over multiple weeks, and plan to take time between visits to incorporate our feedback throughout your full document. You may want to make appointments with multiple coaches (clearly delineating which pages to review) to speed up the process.
We do not accept more than one dissertation appointment per student per day.
Yes! Our colleagues at the Online Writing and Learning Center have created an APA Style assignment template and an APA Style dissertation template available for your use. The dissertation template, along with the dissertation manual and other important forms, can be accessed on the Dissertation Documents page. The assignment template is accessible through the Online Writing and Learning Center website.
