You may make appointments by clicking on any of the white boxes. You can make an appointment with a specific consultant or for a specific time for up to 1 hour, however the consultation will only last 50 minutes maximum (the online scheduler doesn't provide an option for 50 minutes). Once you select a time a new window will open. Please include an explanation of what you would like to focus on during your session.

Please be aware that we will hold your appointment for you for 15 minutes after the scheduled time. After that point, if someone is waiting for a session, we will let them have it. We need students to be on time, and it is important for you to cancel your appointment if you cannot come. This is how we are able to serve the maximum number of students.
