How to Schedule an Appointment

White boxes represent available slots. You need FOUR white boxes in a row to book an appointment. The first of the four white boxes you click on will determine the time your appointment begins. Each white box represents 15 minutes—four boxes in a row equals 60 minutes. Although you are reserving an hour, appointments are 45 minutes long; the remaining 15 minutes will be used for your consultant to write a summary of your session and send it back to you via email. 

Missed Appointments

If you are 10 minutes late to an appointment, your appointment will be canceled and marked as a “no show.” If you know that you will be unable to attend an appointment in advance, please log on to our scheduling page and cancel your appointment. If you are running late for an appointment, please call the front desk to let us know. Multiple “no show” appointments will result in your account being disabled. For an e-Tutoring session, this means uploading your document prior to your appointment time. For an Online session, this means logging into our chat interface by your appointment time. 

Important Information about e-Tutoring Appointments

You will be prompted to upload a document for review when you schedule an e-Tutoring appointment. If you choose to upload a document at a later time, select the yellow folder icon at the toolbar located at the top of the page. This folder allows you to attach a file to an existing appointment. If you have difficulty uploading the document, please email the file to writingcenter@stjohns.edu.

We can only work with Microsoft Word files. Please ensure that your submission is in Word format and submitted as an attachment. We cannot work with PDFs, OneDrive links, Google Docs, etc.
