How to Schedule

Schedule Appointments

You have three options for scheduling an appointment:

  • Use our online scheduling system
  • Call our Welcome Desk at 513-529-6100, from 10:00AM—9:00PM EST
  • Stop by our Welcome Desk in King Library

If you want an appointment for 4 or more weeks, request a recurring appointment.

Need Help? Call 513-529-6100 for on-campus appointments or email for online appointments.

Scheduling and Cancellation Policies

  • Schedule 1 appointment per day, up to 2 days per week.
  • Cancel at least 2 hours before your appointment time, or your appointment will be marked as a "no-show." After 2 "no-shows," you will lose the ability to use our online scheduling system and must schedule appointments in-person, by phone, or by email for the remainder of the semester.

Using Our Scheduling System

You will need to register for an account, if you are a first-time user.
