Online Writing Consultations (1 hour)

The WMC Center provides online writing consultations for students unable to visit the Center in person. For instance, you may request online writing consultants if you are studying abroad, commuting far from campus, or you have child-care concerns that prevent you from coming to campus. Normal tutoring hours and rules apply for online writing consultations. Learn more about online writing consultations and what you'll need to do to prepare.


The Writing and Multiliteracy Center provide a range of workshops for faculty and students. For more information or to make a request, visit our workshop page.

Services for Students with Diverse Needs

The Writing and Multiliteracy Center strives to serve all CI students and accommodate their diverse learning needs. While most students request 30-minute appointments, we recommend that all students, who would like extra time on writing or communication, request a one-hour appointment. In order to ensure that we provide quality support for as many students as possible, students are limited to one-hour appointments per week. However, students can check in once a day to see if any tutors are available for a drop-in session (up to 30 min).

In addition, students can submit a request for asynchronous voicethread tutoring (learn more): after student submit their request with their assignment, they can receive a recorded video feedback from a tutor within 72 operational hours (may be longer during the summer and winter intercession when we have limited hours). Asynchronous tutoring counts as an hour appointment, but its benefits are many: students can replay the video many times; students can submit their request at any time of day; student do not need to be in person or interact directly with the tutor to get feedback; video/visual feedback may help visual/auditory learners but students can also request text-based feedback and close captioning. If you have any questions, please feel free to email us or visit us online!

Please note that all students, with or without disabilities, must adhere to WMC policies and procedures.
