What is WC Online?

In keeping with our commitment to provide ongoing quality support for our students, Writing and Tutoring Services will continue to offer online virtual sessions, and begin limited in-person meetings by appointment only, in accordance with provincial recommendations and Tyndale’s re-opening strategy. For more information, or to book an appointment, please visit WC Online.

WC Online is the online booking service for Writing and Tutoring Services and Academic Advising and Career Services. Appointments with these services are available to all currently active Tyndale students. If this is your first time booking with us, please read on for booking instructions. Otherwise, you can book now

1) Log into classes.tyndale.ca. Select the “Appointments” button inside the “Writing & Tutoring Services/ Academic Advising & Career Services” box on your dashboard. If you are an active student, you will then see a button that says "Book / Modify an Appointment." If this button does not appear for you, contact us at writing [at] tyndale [dot] ca. (NOTE: If this is your first time accessing WC Online, you will have to complete a short registration form before you can book).

2) Use the weekly calendar. Once logged in, you will be able to book your appointment with a Writing and Tutoring Services Consultant or with Academic Advising and Career Services.

4) Select which week you want to book. Use the “Current Week”, “Previous Week”, or “Next Week” buttons to see what times and dates are available to book each week. The small calendar beside “Next Week” can also be used for faster navigation. (NOTE: Students may book appointments up to 4 weeks in advance).

6) Complete the "Create New Appointment" form that opens when you click an open timeslot. First, confirm the time range. For 30-minute appointments, you can leave the time frame as is. But for 1-hour appointments (recommended), select the correct end time from the dropdown. You can also read the Consultants profile here.

Then, fill out the rest of the form so your consultant will be better prepared to assist you. Let us know your course information, assignment instructions, citation style, and kind of support desired. You can also attach a document to review with your Consultant (recommended). Click the “Create Appointment” button to finalize your booking.

You will know that your appointment has been booked properly because the open time slot you previously selected will now be yellow. You will also receive a confirmation email at your myTyndale address.

7) To edit or cancel your appointment, click on your yellow time slot, and then click the appropriate button at the bottom of the window that opens. PLEASE NOTE that all appointments must cancelled with at least 20 hours’ notice. If you need to cancel with less notice, please contact us at writing [at] tyndale [dot] ca. At that point, we will count it as a strike as per our Cancellation Policy.
