Click on the “Register for an Appointment” button.
Log in using your ATS login information.
If this is your first time to the site, it will ask you to create an account. Please follow the instructions to do so.
Once you have created your account, it will take you to the Calendar page, where you can make an appointment. Next time you click on the “Register for an Appointment” button, it will take you directly to the Calendar page.
On the Calendar page, white spaces indicate an available appointment. Click on the one that works for you, and fill out the form that pops up. You should receive an email confirming your appointment.
On the day of your appointment, please come to the Writing Center (BL Fisher Library, First Floor). Bring the following with you:
A copy of the essay you want help with. It is fine to bring a laptop, if you prefer to look at your paper on the computer
A copy of your syllabus
The instructions for the assignment
Specific questions - remember, we won’t be able to cover everything in your paper in one session, so if you come with specific questions, it will help your consultant provide more targeted help
On the Calendar page, up at the top right under the logo, look for “KY Campus - Writing Center.” If you click on that, it will give you the option to choose “FL, TN, and ExL Students.”
Appointments for distance learners are asynchronous, which means that you are not actually signing up to meet with a consultant. Instead, you are reserving 30 minutes of the consultant’s time when he or she will focus exclusively on your submission.
Specific questions will help consultants to focus their comments. Use the “What would you like to work on in this appointment?” box to ask any specific questions you might have.
After you make your appointment, you need to upload your paper.
Your consultant will download your paper, review it, and return it to you with comments. You should receive an email telling you when your returned paper is ready for you.
Papers will be returned within 24-48 hours of the scheduled appointment. Please plan ahead to give yourself time to make revisions before your assignment is due.
Dear Asbury Theological Seminary community,
Welcome to the Writing Center!
As many of you already know, we are now up and running! I want to say a big “Thank you!!!” to all the students who have already come in (or who have made appointments and are planning to come in). It has been a pleasure working with you, and I am looking forward to working with many more of our students in the days to come.
Over the coming months, you will see a number of additions to this website. We will be adding a collection of handouts, addressing some of the most frequently asked writing questions. In addition, we hope to develop a series of self-guided writing tutorials on a variety of helpful topics. If you have suggestions for handouts or tutorials you would like to see, please let us know!
Our primary function, however, will continue to be providing one-on-one consultation services for Asbury students. You can make an appointment for a consulting session through this website using the instructions below.
Thank you for your interest in the Writing Center! I hope to see you there soon!
Dr. Ginger Stelle
Director of the Writing Center
