Writing Center

The Writing Center provides one-on-one writing support to all AHC students for any reading and writing assignment. Our goal is to help students become more skillful and confident writers. The Writing Center also offers writing skills workshops, support materials, computers for students to work on writing assignments, and support to faculty.

Students who wish to access the Writing Center’s services must enroll in the free, noncredit BASK 7015 Reading and Writing Lab course. Students can enroll during their first visit to the center or in advance through myHancock.
