What To Expect
When you make an appointment, you'll be assisted by one of the UWC's trained consultants, who earn certification from the College Reading and Learning Association. Our consultants can help you with any kind of writing or speaking project and at any stage of your creative process.
You'll receive personalized advice and assistance based on your project and your needs. We will 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 revising your paragraphs or practicing presentations. Group appointments are also available for students working on group projects.
What Types of Appointments Can I Make?
Meet one on one with a writing/speaking consultant. Bring questions or ideas, papers, videos, slides, or outlines. You can also make appointments for a group working together on a project. Or we can watch you deliver a presentation in our practice room and give you feedback.
Online (via email)
Submit your papers, slides, or videos online through our scheduling system. A writing/speaking consultant will spend up to 45 minutes making comments on your work and responding to questions you've posed. You won't get an immediate reply. We'll let you know when you can expect a response at the time you submit.
Web Conferencing (via Zoom)
Meet with a writing consultant for up to 45 minutes online over Zoom.We can look at, papers, presentations, slides, or videos (such as videos of you delivering a speech). Or we can discuss your assignments and just brainstorm.
Need Proof of Your Visit?
If you need proof that you visited the UWC, you'll need to let your consultant know, or contact us to send a report. We'll email the report to your university email, 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.

If you need help with an honor undergraduate thesis, you're eligible for our DATA program.
