Check WCOnline every evening at 9:00 PM (standard time, from November to March) or 10:00 PM (daylight savings time, from March to November), or early morning if possible. Our schedule is released a day at a time, up to five working days ahead. For example, on Thursday at 9:00 PM or 10:00 PM (depending on standard or daylight savings time), you will be able to see next Thursday's schedule and availability.

Joining Your Online Appointment (Last Update 06/01/2021)
The steps to joining your online tutoring appointment are as follows:

  1. Log in to your WCOnline account before starting your session and open your yellow appointment. Make sure that you are logged into Zoom using your One.SJSU account.
  2. Click the yellow highlighted Zoom meeting link in the tutor bio section.
  3. The Zoom window will automatically open, and you will be placed in the waiting room. Your tutor will admit you at your scheduled start time.

We no longer send Google Calendar iCal invitations to student email addresses; instead, students should follow the steps described above
