When scheduling an appointment
- Schedule sessions using the coach's online calendar by clicking the "Schedule an Appointment With Me" button, or request specific dates/times by clicking the "Send Email" link under the coach's profile picture.
- Please use your NSU email address when scheduling an appointment using our the online calendar. Include the name of your program, class, and professor and a brief explanation of your goals for the session.
- The EWC has only 25 appointment slots available each week to serve students in all programs in the College of Health Care Sciences, and those appointment slots fill up on a first-come-first-served basis. Avoid procrastination. Schedule an appointment early in your writing process so you are able to get an appointment before the slots are filled. Due to time constraints, coaches do not provide last-minute/emergency sessions, if slots are already filled.
- Appointments must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance.
- Only 1 appointment is allowed per week (Monday-Sunday), per person, and students can schedule up to a maximum of 2 appointments in advance. The writing coaches collaborate and communicate with one another regarding student scheduling and will, unfortunately, have to cancel extra appointments that exceed the policy.
- You may submit your paper to the coach at least 24 hours in advance of your scheduled appointment (but it is not required).
During the session
- Sessions are scheduled for 50 minutes-1 hour.
- Sessions are held either in-person at the HPD Library or online using GoToMeeting or other technology agreed upon by the student and the coach. Please indicate your preference (in-person or online) when scheduling.
After the session
- After each session, coaches may email feedback to the student, if necessary.
- Coaches will encourage students to revise the paper and to schedule a follow-up appointment to discuss the next draft, if necessary.
- Students are required to complete a survey about the coaching session(s).
- Faculty may request a record of attendance for their students' coaching sessions; however, specific information regarding sessions will remain confidential between the student and the writing coach.
