During the COVID-19 pandemic, Writing Centre consultants will not meet with students in person.  Instead, we will provide feedback on documents using tracked changes and margin comments. Due to the time required for this approach, we can only review written work associated with scheduled appointments
 
If you have an appointment, please attach a Word file (not PDF) to your appointment before the scheduled start time. 
 
To attach files or add comments to your appointment:
  1. Click on your appointment to open it in a new window
  2. Click "Edit Appointment" (blue button at the bottom)
  3. Add comments (optional)
  4. Attach files (draft of your paper, instructions, grading rubric)
  5. Click "Save Changes"
  6. Close window
To help us provide the best guidance, please attach the assignment instructions or explain them in the comments section of your appointment. 
 
You can also use the comments section to raise any questions or concerns about your assignment.
 
The Writing Centre consultant will attach the reviewed file to your appointment and you'll receive an email notification when it's ready. 
 
We'll review as much of your document as possible within the appointment time and upload the reviewed file at the end of your appointment or soon after.   
 
If you do not have an appointment, please use the daily waiting list feature to be notified of any available appointment times.
 

The Writing Centre provides one-on-one writing help to all current UNBSJ students in all disciplines at all stages of the writing process.

 

We help with academic writing, cover letters, resumes, and application essays for scholarships and graduate school.

 

Appointments may be made up to four weeks in advance. Students can book up to four appointments at a time, with a maximum of one per week.

 

If the schedule is full, you can join the waiting list each day. You will receive an email notification whenever a time becomes available that day, and you can book it if you wish.

 


Please bring a printed double-spaced version of your assignment, along with the instructions, to your appointment.

The email and password you choose for this website is NOT linked to your UNB account. Changing your UNB password will not change your password for the Writing Centre.

You can update your profile in WCOnline at any time to change your email, password, or any other details.

Late and missed appointments policy:


If a student is 15 minutes late for his/her appointment, the appointment will be cancelled and logged as a No Show. The remaining appointment time (30 minutes) may be available on a first come-first served basis.

If you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, please do so well in advance so the time booked becomes available for other students. 

Students who regularly miss appointments (without cancelling them) risk losing their Writing Centre privileges.
