Writing Center

The Writing Center provides support for any credit students who need assistance with reading and writing. Students enrolled in English 512-514 classes spend two hours per week completing lab assignments that compliment classroom instruction as part of their course credit. Additionally, ESL students complete one hour per week in the lab working on lab assignments (which are assigned by the instructor). Students who are not enrolled in English 512-514 or ESL Writing skills may register for the half-unit Writing Center course, English 306, in order to fully utilize the lab. Faculty tutors and lab staff are available to help students address individual reading and/or writing issues. Students may use computers, study independently, or work in groups.
