The GW Writing Center's appointment website, WC Online, is accessible with a screen reader. The text-only area can be accessed through the ACCESS TEXT-ONLY/ACCESSIBLE & MOBILE VERSION link that appears at the top left of nearly every page in WC Online and is intended for use with screen-reading programs and other accessibility tools.
If the day when you would like to schedule an appointment on WC Online is completely booked, you can choose to join our waitlist. The waitlist feature on WC Online will notify you of any appointments that get canceled during the time(s) you have selected. Once you are notified of the availability, you can log in to WC Online or contact the Front Desk via phone or email to schedule the appointment.
Please note that notifications for open appointments will be sent to everyone on the waitlist who requested that time, so reserving the appointment immediately upon receipt of the notification is key.
How to Join the Waitlist in WC Online
- Click on Waiting List link at the bottom right of the day you would like to be placed on the waitlist.
- Select a start and end time for when you would like to be notified of open appointments. Then, press "Join the Waiting List." The greater your availability, the greater your chances are of being able to claim a canceled appointment.
