I. WRITING COACHING
Schedule a 30-minute on-campus, online, or email writing appointment with a writing coach. Read instructions (i) carefully on our Booking page above.
Your coaches are trained to cultivate purpose-driven writers, communicators, and influencers (see People). They are here to help you develop the necessary process and strategies to become a more rhetorical writer, who communicates clearly and persuasively (see Mission). They will NOT “fix” your grammar or paper because they are not your editors. But they will provide useful resources and help you to recognize areas of improvement.
Ideally, you should make an appointment when you first receive your assignment. If you wait until the last minute, they’ll still help you, but there won’t be much time to make much of a difference.
What you need to schedule an appointment:
- Name, phone, and LancerMail
- Course number and instructorʼs name
- Brief description of assignment
- Preferences: coach, date, time
Hours: M-Th 9:00am - 9:00 pm, F 9:00am - 6:00pm
What to prepare for your appointment:
- Assignment prompt, rubric, sample (request from instructor)
- Draft of essay
- Readiness to be teachable
- Arrive on time at designated location (online or on-campus)
II. GRAMMARLY REPORT
Although writing coaches will not proofread your paper, the University Writing Center has access to Grammarly Premium, which is an AI-powered writing assistant that highlights mistakes and suggests corrections.
If you have an appointment with our coaches, ask them to download a full Grammarly report for you. If you don't have an appointment, come to Lancer Arms #54 and check-in with our front desk to download your report now.
III. GRADUATE STUDENTS
For master's and doctoral students who need graduate-level writing support, the Director of the University Writing Center offers two workshops at the beginning and middle stages of your program. Visit our Resources page for links to recorded workshop videos.
