We are closed for the Fall semester.
We'll reopen Tuesday, January 21st.
TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT: Click the WCOnline tab on the left side of the screen or watch this short video to learn how to make an appointment. Register with the system or log in and select the day and time you'd like your appointment. If you'd like an online appointment or you'd like to work with a specific consultant, please indicate that on your appointment form. We take two appointments per hour, but drop-ins are also welcome. Questions or comments should be directed to us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, phone 828-262-3144, or in person in Belk Library and Information Commons, room 008.
Unable to get to the UWC in person? We now offer online writing assistance to all ASU students, just be sure to indicate that you'd like an online session in your Appointment Form in WCOnline. For more information call us at (828)262-3144, or visit our Online Services webpage.
If you have to miss an appointment, we'd appreciate you calling or emailing to cancel it; however, if you simply miss it, you may not have another appointment that day. You may have an appointment any other day. An appointment is considered missed, or a no show, at 10 minutes after the hour, and you will be notified of all missed appointments via email. Three missed appointments in a semester will result in a suspension of UWC priviliges for the remainder of that semester.
The University Writing Center (UWC) offers free services to students, faculty, and staff of Appalachian State University and the Boone community. Anyone who would like to discuss a piece of writing with an informed, sensitive reader is welcome. We are here to work with writers on a wide variety of projects: papers for academic courses; masters and senior thesis chapters; personal essays for job, graduate school, and law school applications; creative writing projects; grant or project proposals; and course syllabi. We work with writers at any stage of the writing process, from inventing topics to editing at the sentence-level. Please note, if you are working on a group assignment, all group members must be present.
Please be aware that emails sent after we close for the week may not be responded to until the following Monday.
