If you are a current CSULB post-baccalaureate student (master's, credential, certificate, or doctoral) seeking writing support or are applying to a CSULB graduate program, you may request a 45-minute appointment with our Graduate Writing Specialist below.

If you are unable to find a suitable appointment time through the online scheduler, we also offer drop-in consultations every Thursday from 10am-6pm (not available from 1-2pm for lunch) or feel free to contact the Graduate Writing Specialist, Omar Hussein, at or (562) 985-8946 to discuss additional scheduling possibilities.

Appointment Policies

Students are encouraged to arrive at the Graduate Studies Resource Center (Library 504) five minutes prior to their appointment time. Late arrival (more than five minutes) without advance notice may result in the cancellation of your appointment. Skipping appointments without cancelling 24 hours in advance may result in restrictions on your ability to make reservations.

Graduate students may schedule as many as three 45-minute appointments per week (Monday-Friday). Appointments may be scheduled up to three weeks in advance through our online scheduling system. Walk-ins are accepted, when the schedule permits, on a first-come, first-served basis – please call ahead (562-985-8946) to check the availability of same-day appointments. 

Appointments with GRSC are voluntary. We do not sign off on extra credit assignments nor do we accept students who are required to make appointments as a condition for improving a grade, getting off of academic probation, or as “punishment” for real or perceived academic misconduct.
