Tips for Getting the Most Out of Your Session

  • Bring or attach supporting materials like assignment sheets, scholarship prompts, or instructor-provided resources
  • Be prepared with some goals for the session--what do you want to focus on?
  • Plan for about 30 minutes per 2 double-spaced pages (appointments can be 30 minutes to 2 hours)

Did You Know?

After your session, your consultant will enter a summary of what you worked on in the appointment system. It will be emailed to you, but you can also go back to the appointment to review feedback and download documents any time.
