The Writing Center knows that Adult Undergraduate Studies (AUS) students have unique needs.
AUS students are often pressed for time, may need to learn or refresh their knowledge in formal academic writing, and may not be as connected to campus news as are our traditional students. The Writing Center strives to assist AUS students as they deal with these unique challenges.
Although the Writing Center highly encourages in-person tutoring sessions, AUS students’ time on campus may be very limited. Therefore, the center offers an online tutoring option.
Online Writing Center
Although we highly recommend one-on-one personal tutoring in the Writing Center, we recognize that this is not always possible for our AUS students. Online tutoring allows students who have no extra time to spend on campus to take advantage of our services.
Writing Fellows from several disciplines volunteer each semester to provide written feedback to students. Writers who submit online for written feedback will receive the same quality of feedback as those who use meet with Writing Fellows face-to-face. Fellows will focus on high-order concerns, such as how well the writing fulfills assignment requirements, the strength of the argument and thesis, and the effectiveness of the organization.
