Policies

  • Students will use WCONLINE to schedule the following LCSC services: paper review appointments, in-person appointments, and video conference appointments. 
  • Papers submitted for review will be returned within two business days of the student's scheduled appointment time (i.e., a paper review appointment booked on Monday will be returned no later than Wednesday; paper review appointments booked on Friday will be returned no later than Tuesday of the following week).
  • Students can schedule paper review appointments anytime during their preferred day regardless of their class schedule, as these appointments are not synchronous and do not include an in-person meeting or a video chat. Instead, students will be emailed LCSC faculty feedback on their papers within two business days when they make this type of appointment. 
  • Students scheduling in-person or video chat appointments must be available to meet at the GRC or online during their appointment time. 
  • Students can book appointments up to two weeks in advance.
  • Students can book up to 120 minutes of appointments per week of paper review or video conferencing. 
  • Students are only allowed two paper reviews per assignment. Assignments requesting a third paper review (even with a different faculty member) will be cancelled, and students will be notified via email. Students are welcome to make an in-person appointment or video conference appointment to address questions about the same assignment/written product--this does not count as a paper review. 
  • Students should cancel appointments at least 12 hours prior to the scheduled time.
  • The LCSC does not provide paper review appointments requested on the same day an assignment is due. 
  • The LCSC will provide one full paper review per MMS deliverable (i.e., first draft, reader draft, defense draft). Students may follow up a paper review with a face-to-face or video chat appointment to discuss the recommended changes, or they may submit small sections of no more than five (5) pages for a paper review; these appointments do not count against the "one draft per deliverable" review policy. The LCSC does not provide feedback on signed MMS drafts, so all reviews must be conducted before the oral defense.  
  • Students can access the LCSC instructional calendar to find available LCSC courses, workshops, and in-person office hours. (To receive access to this calendar, email LCSC@usmcu.edu.)
