Appointments

Schedule an Appointment using our Online Scheduler (if you have not used the Online Scheduler before, you will be prompted to register first).

Appointments are scheduled every hour on the half hour. Appointments last no more than 25 minutes.

You will need to print a copy of your work and bring it with you for your session.

If you are more than 5 minutes late for a scheduled appointment, and someone drops in, we will give your time away. If this happens, we will gladly reschedule another appointment for you.

FREQUENCY OF VISITS: You are limited to 2 sessions daily: 1 scheduled appointment and 1 drop-in. You are also limited to 3 scheduled appointments per week. Weekly drop-ins are unlimited, but are not to exceed 1 per day.

MISSED APPOINTMENT POLICY: If you miss 2 or more appointments and do not cancel them in advance, your account will be disabled for the rest of the semester. If your account is disabled, you will only be able to drop-in since you will no longer have access to our online schedule. Canceling an appointment is easy! You can call the CWE to cancel your appointment: 973-655-7442 or log in to our schedule, click on your appointment, and select "cancel this appointment" at the bottom of your appointment box. Thank you for working with us to make sure that all the writers at Montclair State University who need appointments can get them.

Emergency Closures

CWE Emergency Contingency Plan

In the event that the University closes due to inclement weather or other emergency, the CWE will also be closed, however, we will change currently scheduled appointments to online appointments. See the Montclair State homepage for all weather-related and emergency closing announcements.

  • If you have an in-person appointment scheduled on a day that the University is closed, please log into Scheduling and reschedule.  
  • If you have an online appointment scheduled on a day that the University is closed, please log into Scheduling to see if the appointment is still listed. If not, you may be able to find another online time on the same day. We will try to offer limited online sessions when the university is closed.

In the event that the University is open, but the CWE must close due to dangerous weather conditions that prevent consultants from getting to and from campus, we will post a notice in our News & Announcements box on our Welcome page. We will also post a notice on our Facebook page.

  • If you have an in-person appointment scheduled on a day that the CWE is closed, and you would like to reschedule for another in-person appointment, please log into Scheduling and reschedule.
  • If you have an in-person appointment scheduled on a day that the CWE is closed, and you would like to switch it to an online appointment for the same day, please log into Scheduling and reschedule with a consultant who shows online availability.
  • If you have an online appointment scheduled on a day that the CWE is closed, please log into Scheduling to see if the appointment is still listed. If not, you may be able to find another online time on the same day.

We will do our best to offer online appointments on days when the CWE has to close.
