Consultant names appear on the left, and their available hours are to the right.
A white block indicates an available appointment. (NOTE: There must be a consultant’s name listed next to a line with white blocks for you to select an available time slot. Notice that Wednesday has no available appointments because no name appears next to the line.)
Booking Your In-Person Appointment (continued)
Once you have found an open time and click on the available white box, an appointment window will open.
You are required to indicate what you will be discussing during the appointment.
Online consulting sessions are different from face to face sessions in several ways. Typically, when you are talking in person, you have your readings, paper, and assignment in a notebook ready to show the consultant. For the most effective online consulting sessions, you should have digital versions of these documents available for uploading at the beginning of the session.
The online consultation system relies on Adobe's Flash web browser plug-in. To avoid technical difficulties, please make sure you have the most up to date version of flash. To obtain the latest version, please direct your browser to this site: http:// www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer .
As these sessions rely heavily on verbal communication, it is mandatory that you have a headset plugged in . If your headset is of the USB variety, ensure that it is plugged in and working properly. If your headset is of the standard type, please ensure that the microphone and headphone jacks are plugged into their proper locations. If you have a webcam, make sure to plug it in BEFORE you open your web browser.
To book an online session, login as you would normally.
You have two options for scheduling online appointments.
You can select an appointment time with a consultant with the designation “In person or online.”
You can select an appointment with a consultant from the “Online Only” schedule.
You must click this box to create an online appointment or leave it blank for a regular appointment. Note, again, that you must have a computer microphone to conduct an online session. Booking Your Online Appointment Booking an online appointment means you are meeting with your consultant over a computer connection.
Note also that if you do not show up for your appointment within ten minutes of your scheduled time, you will be marked as a No Show. After three No Shows in a term, you lose the privilege to reserve appointments for the remainder of the term.
We want to make your experience with the UCEW a positive one. Please make sure to read carefully all of our policies when you create your account. As long as you are aware of our policies, you will not be surprised, for example, to find out that we do not proofread papers for you and that you must cancel an appointment 30 minutes before your designated start time to avoid a No Show if you cannot attend.
