Online Appointments for Graduate Students

Online consultations are for graduate students only

Please note that Loyola's distance learning platform has changed to Zoom as of Spring 2018. As a result the Writing Center will now be using Zoom to conduct its online appointments. These appointments are a unique service we provide to our graduate students across all three campuses during regular business hours. In order to use this service, you must make an appointment with us so our tutors can have a scheduled amount of time to review your assignment. Your appointment will take place in real time, as a live Zoom meeting. Since you will be chatting with your tutor you must be present at your computer with internet access at the time of your appointment, just as you would for a face-to-face appointment.

Loyola Office of Technology Services supports this service. If you have questions, you can contact OTS directly at x5555 or ots@loyola.edu. 

How Connect With Your Tutor Online

  1. You will need to schedule an official appointment. These are easy to create
  2. You must be 'present' online during your appointment to engage with your tutor and answer questions. A webcam and microphone are not necessary. The built-in chat function can also provide real-time communication.
  3. When you are ready for your appointment to begin, check the name of the tutor with whom you scheduled your online appointment and click on the appropriate name below to join your meeting with a writing center tutor.
  4. Once connected, your tutor will walk you through the rest of the appointment.
