The Learning Commons uses an appointment booking system to facilitate your appointments.

This system will allow you to view all the schedules to make or cancel appointments, join the waitlist, and more. Our online sessions take place from right within this platform, so you will need to have the link handy to access your sessions. For help with navigating the booking system, please see the instructions below.
