Make an Appointment
Students may make an appointment for one-on-one collaboration and instruction with a GCC tutor during any of our available hours. Appointments are typically 50 minutes long. You may make same-day appointments, or you can schedule an appointment up to two weeks before you would like to work with a tutor.
When you schedule an appointment, you will be asked to provide
- a copy of the assignment prompt (or instructions) for the project that you are working on
- a copy of your most current draft
- (optionally) a model essay, which may be a sample project that your instructor has handed out with the assignment or a course reading that reflects the type of assignment you are being asked to produce. The model essay helps our tutors prepare for your appointment and assists them in giving you the best advice possible for meeting your instructor's expectations.
You will receive a reminder approximately two hours before your appointment asking you to upload the most recent version of your draft. Tutors will read this draft before your appointment so they can decide what method of feedback will be most helpful to you and so the appointment can begin as soon as you arrive.
Our hours for Spring 2013 are Sunday 6pm-9pm; Monday-Wednesday 2pm-7pm and Thursday 2pm-8pm. We are located on the ground floor of the Hunt library. Schedule your appointment now!
Waitlist an Appointment
If the appointment time you want is booked, you may add yourself to the waitlist by clicking on the clock icon next to the date. You can then elect to be notified if there are any cancellations.
Our Cancelation and No-Show Policy
It is very important to us to serve as many students as possible. If you cancel an appointment without notice, you are taking up a resource that other students can be using. Therefore, appointments that are canceled less than two hours before the scheduled time, will be counted as a no-show. After two no-shows, students will be blocked from scheduling further appointments until they talk to one of the GCC Directors.
