Important Writing Center Policies To Be Aware Of

The tutors at the Writing Center are committed to assisting as many students as possible. The following policies allow us to provide that service. We appreciate your understanding.

  • Students need to walk-in or make an appointment 24 hours BEFORE their paper is due.
  • Tutorial sessions are scheduled for, and limited to, 30 minutes.
  • Appointments take precedence over walk-in meetings.
  • To avoid disruption and distraction, we ask that cell phone use be kept to an essential minimum.
  • Electronic drafts are not acceptable for review.
  • Please understand that we are tutors, not editors. We are here to help students improve their writing, not simply to correct their mistakes.
  • Tutors are available during these times only and won’t be able to meet, schedule appointments, or answer emails/phone calls outside scheduled hours.
