Schedule online or in-person appointments with our amazing tutors!

Lincoln Center (LC): Quinn Library, Room 233
Please note that only Rose Hill and Lincoln Center students should schedule appointments using this portal. If you are a Westchester student, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment.
Masking Policy: Due to the close quarters and manner of interaction during appointments, the Writing Center will continue to require the use of masks at all locations out of respect for the health, security, and comfort of our tutors and students. Thank you for your understanding
For AY 2022-23, most WC tutoring is being offered as either in-person (meaning you have to be physically present at the Writing Center) or online synchronous sessions (meaning you will have a one-on-one video chat with your tutor at the time of your appointment). We encourage you to select the modality that best serves your schedule and needs.
How in-person appointments work: When you make an in-person appointment, you will report to the physical Writing Center location you signed up for. Be sure when making in-person appointments that you are looking at the calendar for the location you wish to visit. When you visit us in person at either Walsh Library (RH) or Quinn Library (LC), you may bring a hard copy of your paper and assignment/prompt or digital versions. Please follow all university pandemic safety requirements and wear your mask!
How online synchronous appointments work: If you choose an online synchronous appointment, you will be speaking with one of our excellent tutors in real time via our online Writing Center system. To make an online appointment, sign up for a session with a tutor marked as "online" on the schedule. Please note that students are welcome to make appointments with whatever tutor they choose, based on availability, regardless of home campus. If you are unable to find an online time slot at your home campus, you are welcome to check the schedule for the other campus.
To ensure a successful synchronous appointment, we ask that you take several steps. When you make your appointment, you have the option to upload your paper and assignment/prompt. You will be able to join your tutor via the online meeting system in your appointment box on our website. In other words, when your time approaches, log back in and click on your Appointment box. In the pop-up window you'll see the following option: START OR JOIN ONLINE CONSULTATION. Click on that and a new window will open where you will be able to talk and see your tutor. When you join the meeting, please make sure your computer's speakers and camera are turned on. You and your tutor can then use video chat, paper upload, copy and paste, and other online functions to look at your paper together. To end the session, just close the window.
Please be sure to read your confirmation email and mark your calendar with your appointment details. If you must cancel your appointment, please email WritingCenter@fordham.edu well in advance. We ask that you please do your utmost to avoid last-minute cancellations and no-shows, as this may cost other students their opportunities to obtain writing support. Multiple no-shows may result in limitation of your Writing Center access.
At Fordham Writing Center, we work with students to improve their writing.
If you are more than ten minutes late for your appointment, it will be canceled and marked a "no-show." Please email us or cancel if you cannot get to your appointment on time.
Please be aware that the Writing Center no longer allows accounts to be made using non-Fordham email addresses. You must register with a Fordham email address. Thank you.
