    The University Writing Support Center will open during Summer Session 2020 for online sessions only beginning Wednesday, May 20 and ending Thursday, July 30. Sessions will be offered at the following times:

    Monday--Thursday: 10:00 a.m.--2:00 p.m.

    The UWSC will be closed for online sessions on days the university is closed. 

    Please note that all times are subject to cancellation. 

    The UWSC strongly encourages clients to have available a copy of the assignment for the writing activity they are working on as well as a grading rubric, if possible.

    Scroll down and click on the link to the online consultation page below to schedule an appointment, but make sure to read all information along the way. 

    UWSC tutors are student peers—undergraduates with a strong background in writing and formal training in tutoring. Although UWSC tutors will not simply proofread papers, they will offer valuable feedback on a wide variety of writing issues, ranging from content to organization to style and mechanics. All students are invited to take advantage of this service.   

    The UWSC will be closed on any days the campus is closed, such as non-instructional days, major holidays, or snow days.

    Please Note: According to UWSC Policy, tutors are not permitted to divulge information regarding a tutoring session to any third party except via an explicit request from the student/client.

    Consultations

    Tutors will be available to help students develop strategies to improve their writing by appointment only. The writing assistance is not designed to edit or proofread papers. Instead the assistance that is provided is intended to foster students’ writing proficiency and independence during the writing process. The University Writing Support Center will:

    • Assist students in improving their writing proficiency and independence during the various stages of their writing assignments
    • Provide a supportive environment where writers and readers work effectively together

     

    Thank you. We look forward to working with you,

    The University Writing Support Center
