How Writing Center Sessions Work

In-Person Appointments: Students come in (Briggs 131) and are actively engaged for 30 minutes with a Consultant. How to prepare: bring your assignment sheet/rubric, your draft, and any other resources the Consultant might need in order to help you (textbook, handouts, etc).

Online Appointments: Students are actively engaged for 30 minutes with the Consultant. The student is able to paste a draft into our online program and the Consultant and Student will instant message one another about ways to improve the draft. How to prepare: have a digital copy of your draft and necessary materials with you to refer to during the session (assignment sheet/rubric, textbook, etc.).

To schedule an in-person or online appointment, visit: The Writing Center Website

For in-person & online appointments, the Writing Center does not provide “drop off” services—all sessions are active engagements between the student and the Consultant.
