I don't need remedial help; Is The Writing Center for me?

some students come in for help on grammar; others come for help brainstorming; others
want help in proofreading or documentation.
Do I have to be enrolled in a specific course to receive help?

How long are the tutoring sessions?

issues with your paper, additional sessions may be suggested.

you how to improve your writing.

for multiple papers. However, the appointments can be back-to-back.
What should I bring to the session?
|You should bring your professor's instructions along with anything you have written
and any ideas for your paper.
What if I have a group project?

of the group to participate in the session. If members are missing, we will be limited
to reviewing the work of writers who are present.

|Walk-ins are welcome, but appointments are strongly recommended. An appointment will
guarantee that you will work with a tutor at the time you need.
Where is the Writing Center located?
