English Language Learners (ELL)
ELL students are encouraged to make use of the University Writing Center. Consultants can help with the unique needs of these students, including clarity, organization, grammar and spelling, formatting and the theory and practice of documenting outside resources. Consultants can also help students better understand assignment guidelines.
Appointments are limited to 45 minutes per day, but students are welcome to schedule multiple visits for longer assignments or more in-depth assistance throughout the writing process.
The University Writing Center is available to help with group papers, presentations and projects. Consultants can assist your group with collaboration, content, organization, style and grammar. Sessions are limited to 45 minutes, and all group members must be present for the consultation.
