The Miller Writing Center (MWC) offers face-to-face and online appointments for current Auburn University students, faculty, and staff. Clients can make up to two appointments per week (Monday through Sunday). Appointments start on the hour and last up to 50 minutes.
The MWC is offering mostly online appointments this semester to ensure the safety and health of our staff members and clients. A limited number of face-to-face appointments are available. Clients who make face-to-face appointments are expected to follow established health and safety guidelines.
The MWC uses WCONLINE to schedule and all appointments. Access to WCONLINE is available through AU Access. Once you log into AU Access, click on the MWC icon. Depending on your role, this may be located under “My Academics,” “Employees,” or “My Campus.” Please see below for step-by-step scheduling instructions.
