As an ICC student or faculty member, you can choose from three types of consultations:
Face to Face
You have three options for scheduling a 25- or 50-minute appointment:
- Use the Make Appointment link to book your appointment online
- Call the Studio at (309) 694-5292
Stop in Room 238A on the East Peoria Campus and make an appointment
Feedback by Email
If you can’t make an appointment during our regular hours, you can still get help by emailing your writing project to the Studio. Feedback by Email (FBE), like a face-to-face Studio consultation, isn’t proofreading or editing. Consultants won’t fix grammatical or typographical errors in your paper. But they will identify bigger picture issues, such as how well your paragraphs are organized and how clear your thesis is. They’ll also tell you what’s working well in your paper and address questions or concerns you have. When you schedule your appointment, make sure to include your assignment information and your questions or concerns so you get detailed and useful comments from your consultant.
You can submit up to three FBEs per week. Requests are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Drafts will be returned with comments within 3 to 5 business days. For papers longer than 10 double-spaced pages, please tell us which 10-page range you would like the consultant to read.
When you can’t get to campus, you can set up an appointment for a consultation LIVE ONLINE through our schedule.
To meet up with a writing consultant live online, sign into our schedule, select the “ONLINE CONSULTATION” schedule from the drop down box at the top of the page, and then book an appointment. To meet with the writing consultant, access your appointment just before it is supposed to begin, and click on “JOIN OR START AN ONLINE CONSULTATION” to open up the online module. Regular consultation policies apply to online consultations.
After your online consultation, fill out a Studio Assessment online!
