The UWC offers in-person or online consultations with certified consultants for writing or public speaking projects. In-person consultations are available at Evans Library year-round or West Campus Library during the fall and spring semesters. At Evans, we recommend making an appointment. We do sometimes have walk-in slots available at Evans, but these are limited depending on our staffing.
You can make appointments up to two weeks in advance, but if you want to book farther ahead for a special project, give us a call and we can book the appointment for you. See Hours & Locations for more details.
Can't get an appointment? West Campus Library is open evenings and for drop-in consultations only.
Our West Campus Library location is open from 5:30 p.m to 9p,m., Sunday through Thursday, during the fall and spring semesters.
In consultations, you'll receive personalized advice and assistance based on your project and your needs. We work with you to improve your writing or speaking, so we'll focus on giving you the knowledge and skills you need to succeed. We can work with you at any stage of your project, from understanding assignments to developing and organizing content to perfecting your prose or practicing presentations. Group appointments are available for students working on group projects.
Need to provide a report on your visit? You'll need to let your consultant know, or contact us to send a report. We'll send the report to you, and you can forward it as needed. We never share reports of your sessions unless you're involved in an issue related to academic integrity, and then we'll only share with a responsible university administrator.
Need help understanding your Turnitin.com report? Let us know on your entry survey that that's what you want to work on and we'll help you intrepret your results and learn how to use sources effectively. NOTE: While we can help you understand a Turnitin.com report, we CAN NOT run reports during sessions.
Need help with a paper in a language other than English? We have some bilingual consultants who may be able to help you, but you'll need to call us at 979-458-1455 to determine their availability.
If you need help with an HONORS UNDERGRADUATE THESIS, you're eligible for DATA.
Running late? Call us at 979-458-1455. We’ll hold your spot. To cancel, go online or call as soon as possible. If you get here more than 5 minutes late and have not called, your appointment might be taken by someone else.
