In Fall 2015, the KU Writing Center adopted a new online appointment system.

  1. Click on any of the blue buttons or simply log in to the appointment system here.
  2. You will be asked to sign in with your KU ID. If you are not prompted to enter your KU ID, you may need to register.
  3. At the top of the sign-in box, select "Click here to register."
  4. You will subsequently be taken to the "Create a New Account" screen.
  5. Follow the prompts to create your new account. You will only need to follow these steps once. 

After these steps are completed and you are registered within our system, you can easily access the appointment system by signing in with your registered email and password.
