Online Services

The University Writing Center (UWC) offers special online consulting services for all clients. Our services are available through WCOnline and must be made at least 2 hours in advance. Once the client has requested an appointment through WCOnline, a confirmation with further instructions will be sent. Online sessions aren't confirmed until clients receive confirmation emails. Appointments made when we're closed may not be confirmed until 9am the next business day. This means you may not be able to have a 9am appointment on a Monday if it was requested Friday after 1pm. Please note that we can only do one online session at a time, so if you request an online session when another is already scheduled, you will be asked to reschedule yours. 

Clients may have up to forty-five minutes of assistance (online or in-house) with an UWC consultant per day. The UWC offers help with academic courses; masters and senior thesis chapters; personal essays for job, graduate school, and law school applications; creative writing projects; grant or project proposals; course syllabi and more!
