Appointments for the Writing Lab on Teams

Appointments will begin the second week of Spring Quarter

Appointments may be made through our Bellevue College Writing Lab Bookings page

  • An appointment may be made from 12 hours to 14 days in advance.
  • Appointments are 30 minutes.
  • You may book no more than 2 appointments with a Writing Lab appointment tutor per day.
  • Use your BC email address for our Bookings and Teams for best results.

To request an appointment on the Bookings page:

  1. First select a service
  2. Then select a date and a time from those available
  3. And then enter your information in the form below the calendar–be sure to spell your email address correctly, so you receive the confirmation message with the link to your meeting!
  4. If you don’t receive a confirmation email within a couple of minutes of booking your appointment, please post in our General channel on Teams to let us know, but we are not able to solve Bookings problems on weekends.

Note: Appointments are not required to visit a tutor at the Writing Lab: You can also visit us during our business hours in our Teams General Channel or in person in D-204.

If you need to reschedule or cancel an appointment:

  1. Open your confirmation email and find the “Reschedule” button in the message body.
  2. A browser page should open with options to reschedule, cancel, or make a new booking. (The link works only when it is more than 12 hours before your appointment. Please make changes and cancellations at least 12 hours before your appointment.)
  3. If you need to cancel less than 12 hours before your appointment, you can call us at (425) 564-2497. If you don’t reach one of us on a weekday, please leave a voicemail.

To meet with the tutor:

  • Log into Teams using your BC email address; other email addresses may not give complete access to all of the program’s functions in the meeting.
  • At the time of your appointment, use the unique link to your meeting in your email confirmation message or the “join” button on your appointment in your Teams calendar.
  • Edge and Chrome browsers work best with the web version of Teams.
