Make an Appointment
All active USF students, faculty, and staff may schedule writing center appointments. Because the schedule fills up quickly, please schedule appointments in advance to secure your preferred time. Additionally, please note the following:
- Writers may only schedule two appointments per week.
- Writers may not schedule two back-to-back appointments.
- Appointments are held until ten past the hour; after this time, the session will be given away.
If you are unable to come to your scheduled session:
- Please cancel as far in advance as possible, preferably at least 24 hours.
- Please be aware that cancelled appointments count towards the two appointments per week allowance.
- Students that cancel or miss three appointments will lose their writing center privileges for the rest of the semester.
Making an Appointment:
- In person: Stop by the Writing Center Reception Desk in LIB125 (past the Circulation desk) during regularly scheduled Writing Center hours.
- Over the phone: Call the Writing Center Reception Desk at (813) 974-8293.
- Through Accudemia: <https://webauth.usf.edu/AuthTransferService/accudemia>
A Note About Online Consultations:

- Be a USF study-abroad student, faculty/ staff
- Have proficiency in Google + Hangout or Google Docs
If you meet the criteria above, please e-mail or call the Writing Center to speak directly with a Coordinator to request an appointment.
If you do not meet the criteria above, please note that SMARTHINKING, a writing consulting service contracted by USF, offers online consultations that are free to all currently enrolled USF students and faculty/staff.
