If you need to cancel your consultation, you can access and cancel your appointment through your account in the scheduling system up to 24 hours before the time of your appointment. The system will not allow you to cancel your appointment after that time. If an emergency arises less than 24 hours before your appointment, you should immediately contact the Writing Advisor with whom your consultation is scheduled. Please note that if you cancel your appointment less than 24 hours in advance without a strong reason or do not show up, a fine of $25 will be charged to your Yale student account for every 30-minute appointment. Please be aware that after three unexplained absences at appointments or frivolous cancelations, your eligibility to use the Graduate Writing Lab will be revoked.
