How many sessions can I sign up for per week, and what happens if I need additional time?

Starting Sunday March 22, temporary sign-up rules are in effect: All appointments are held online; students may schedule two 50-minute appointments per week, one per day; there are no drop-in appointments available. See current sign-up policies under Quick Links on the right margin of this page.

Students may schedule one 50-minute appointment in advance each week (Monday to Sunday). For a second appointment in a given week, students may drop in, in person or online, during our regular schedule of appointments, based on availability. Additionally, look for “Library Drop-In” hours on select days during the final weeks of the fall and spring semesters, when the Writing Center will hold drop-in hours at the Social Work Library Circulation Desk (CSSW 2nd floor).

To drop in during our regular schedule of appointments, find an available time slot, arrive at the meeting location at the start of the session, and ask to drop in.

To drop in online, find an available time slot on our regular schedule of appointments, weekdays only, and email Director Adam Pellegrini (ap3149@columbia.edu) prior to 8AM (EST) the day of the desired appointment (up to 24-hours in advance). In your email, be sure to follow these instructions:
In the subject line, include:

  1. “Online Drop-in Request”
  2. Your first and last name, as you registered with the Writing Center
  3. your UNI.

In the email body, include:

  1. The writing consultant name(s)
  2. The preferred appointment time(s) (include all possible)

Expect to receive a response email the morning of the requested appointment to confirm or cancel your request, depending on same-day availability of the appointment(s) you specified.
