During the college's COVID-19 cancellation of face-to-face (F2F) classes, the Writing & Reading Center (WRC) will offer online assistance to students by advance appointment only. Students can request an online appointment (to take place during our Monday-Friday and Sunday business hours) by emailing us at (Starting March 20, this is our account dedicated to student online appointments. It is monitored regularly throughout our M-F business hours.)

WRC sessions are typically 30 minutes, but they can last from 20 minutes to longer, as necessary. For instructions on what information students need to provide when requesting an online appointment, please refer to our Contact Us page.

Important change starting March 20: To help the WRC staff keep organized during this COVID-19 time when we have suspended our F2F and phone service for this current semester, we ask that you direct your questions as detailed below, depending on your purpose:

  1. For students seeking to schedule an online appointment: Please see our Contact Us page for directions on how to request an online appointment in advance.
  2. For other general inquiries: Please email us at (We will monitor this email account for general inquiries and other business throughout our M-F hours.)

We're here to support students. If you have any questions, email us (at the addresses noted above, depending on your purpose) and we will respond during our M-F business hours. We thank you in advance for your patience, as we all adjust to to new procedures, formats, and constraints during this unprecedented time.
