Comm Center Policies

  • We welcome walk-ins, but students with appointments have priority. A consultant will work with you as soon as one is available. However,  we recommend that you make an appointment with the Communication Center as soon as possible. Please realize that there will be times during the semester there will be a high demand and appointments will fill quickly.
  • Appointments are for 30 minute sessions. If you need further assistance, you are welcome to make another appointment during the week.
  • You may book up to two appointments during a week, but not more than one session per day. You may, however, obtain a walk-in session beyond your two booked appointments if a Consultant is available.
  • If you are running late, we will hold your appointment for 10 minutes. After the 10 minutes, we will allow another student to have the appointment slot. Remember, your appointment is for the remaining time of your appointment.
  • You may make an appointment for your group, but we ask that at least two (2) members of your group come to the session.
  • If you must break an appointment, please notify the Communication Center as soon as possible. We ask that you give a 24 hour notice if possible.
  • If you miss two sessions without notifying the Communication Center, you will be prohibited from making further appointments for the rest of the semester. However, this does not mean that you can not use the services of the Communication Center. You may walk-in and wait for an available Consultant to help you. However, students with appointments will have priority.
  • Consultants will assist with general questions about writing and outlining. For more in-depth writing requirements, students will be referred to the Writing Center.
  • The Communication Center will assist with general questions about imbedding videos into PowerPoint or any other presentation program.  However, we do not edit video projects.
  • The Communication Center CANNOT guarantee grades for an assignment. Our Consultants can assist you in developing the skills for success in the classroom, but grading is dependent upon your performance in the classroom. The professor will assign your grades in relation to your performance on the assignment. The Communication Center will not speculate about the grade that you will receive for your assignment.
  • When making an appointment you will need your Murray State ID or M number for records keeping purposes done by the Communication Center.
