Ready to make an appointment with the Writing Center Online, our fully online consultations exclusively for students enrolled in one or more online courses?

Just follow the instructions below:

  1. Log in to the AdvisorTrac appointment system by clicking here  (Note: Use Google Chrome as your browser for best results). Use your FAU ID, without the "@fau.edu," to log in to make an appointment. Your password is your Z#, including the Z.
  2. Once you have logged in, select “Search Availability” under “Student Options” on the left-hand side of your screen. (Note: If this is your first time logging in, you may be asked to confirm your information. Click “Confirm” and then close the pop-up window).
  3. On the left-hand side of the screen, under “Search Criteria,” use the drop down menu to select “Writing Center Online.” It is the last option on the list, so you will need to scroll to the bottom. Use the drop down menu under “Section” to select your course. Click “Search” at the bottom of the menu, and the available sessions will be displayed on the right.
  4. You can make the appointment by simply clicking on the time slot that works best for your schedule. A pop-up window will appear and ask you to enter some information. Select "Online Consultation" from the "Reason" drop-down menu and provide your Skype Username in the "Notes" field. Then click “Save.” You will receive an email confirmation. We recommend that students making an appointment to meet online actually create two consecutive half-hour appointments to allow extra time for navigating the technology.
