ASC Online Scheduling for Tutoring and Writing Consultations

The ASC uses a web-based appointment scheduling system for each of our services. This system, known as WCOnline, allows students to view ASC schedules and make appointments at the students’ convenience.

To view the ASC schedules or make an appointment, students can visit https://dbq.mywconline.com/. Sign in to your existing account using your UD email address and WCOnline password, and then select the appropriate schedule (Tutoring, Writing Consulting, Testing Services, or Disability Services). If this is your first visit to WCOnline, you will need to register for an account using your UD email address, answer a few questions, and set up a password.

Once logged in, follow the instructions or click on an available time slot to schedule an appointment. If necessary, use the Limit to: dropdown menu to refine your search to a specific course or type of testing. You can also switch between schedules using the dropdown menu at the top of the page.
