The Center becomes busier as the semester goes on, so we suggest that you make appointments as far in advance of your due dates as possible.

We recognize that we all learn in different ways. Please contact the director Margaret Mika about your individual learning needs and how the Center can best accommodate them:

Make a 25 or 50-minute appointment with a Writing Center tutor in these ways:

How to Make/Cancel Appointments

How to Start Your Online Session

  • Best option! Make an Appointment Online. Click on any white squares (available times) on the online schedule to reserve a time. To log into the schedule, you will need to first register your UWM email address. Click the link above; the registration link will be at the top of the next page in blue letters.
  • Call if you need help making an appointment: 414-229-4339.
  • Please do not email your paper ahead of time. Before we read along with you, we’ll want to hear about your assignment, your concerns, and your goals. We always work collaboratively in real time. Your voice and your choices are always part of our conversation.
  • Due to our high demand and finite resources, writers are welcome to reserve up to 3 hours per week. Beyond that, further appointments are available within reason, based on the Writing Center’s schedule and on administrators’ discretion.
  • For pedagogical and practical reasons, writers may schedule no more than 1 visit per day even if a tutor is available.
  • To encourage responsible use of the online scheduler, writers’ accounts with 2 ‘no-shows’ will be automatically disabled although those writers may still walk-in to see a tutor for the rest of the semester.

If you cannot keep your appointment, please cancel online as a courtesy to other writers and Writing Center staff. Thank you.
