Appointment Policies

Our policies are designed to help us best serve Brown's community of writers.


  • Students may consult on one paper or project per visit; multiple writing assignments are not allowed.
  • Writing appointments start on the hour and last 50 or 55 minutes. 
  • Students may not have more than one appointment in a day.
  • We do not work on take-home exams unless you provide written permission from your course instructor.

Cancellation Policy

  • Please cancel at least 24-hours in advance; this way we can give your appointment to someone else.
  • If you no-show or repeatedly miss appointments without calling in advance, you will not be allowed to visit the Writing Center again during the semester without approval from the Program Manager.
  • If you are more than ten minutes late and do not contact us, your appointment time may be given to another student.
