Requesting an Appointment
While the Writing Center does accept walk-ins for in-person consultations, we encourage you to schedule an appointment ahead of time as that guarantees your timeslot. Walk-ins are served around scheduled appointments on a first come, first served basis.
How to Schedule an In-Person or Online Appointment with the Writing Center
To schedule an appointment, please visit our new WC Online page: https://svcc.mywconline.com/. You will be prompted to create an account using your Sauk Valley email. Once your account has been created, you will be able to see the available timeslots for each writing consultant for each day of the week, and you will be able to schedule and cancel your own appointments.
If you have questions or run into any trouble with WC Online, please reach out to us by either emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 815-835-6398. We will be happy to assist you.
Canceling an Appointment
We understand that life happens and schedules change, so if you need to cancel an appointment, you are able to do so on WC Online up to 10 minutes before your appointment is scheduled to begin. If you need to cancel after this 10-minute window, please call or email us as soon as possible so that we can open your timeslot to other students.
Please do not no-show--it is disrespectful to your consultant and to the other students at Sauk who might have been able to take the timeslot. If we notice that a student makes a habit of no-showing, that student may not be allowed to schedule appointments ahead of time and will be restricted to walk-in consultations only.
What to Bring with You to Your Consultation
Please arrive to your appointment on time to the best of your ability and bring the following things with you: your student ID number (for logging into Who's Next), your assignment sheet or essay prompt (if applicable), and a copy of the document you'd like to work on (or any notes or prewriting you've done if you haven't started writing yet). We have both desktops and laptops available for your use if you need one for your consultation.
We hope to see you soon!
