I want someone to proofread my paper. Can I just drop my paper off?
At the Writing Center, we want to help you develop your writing skills. We believe that the best way to do this is to have a conversation about your work, focusing initially on big picture issues, like focus and organization. To help students most effectively, we require that students work with us in appointments and do not allow drop off service. Note that the Writing Center will only work with the original author of an assignment or document.
How do I make an appointment?
You can make an appointment in one of several ways:
- Call (501) 450-5123;
- Drop by Thompson 109;
- Access our online scheduler and make an appointment from your own computer.
For more information about appointments, visit our Appointments page.
How do I cancel my appointment?
If you need to cancel your appointment, simply revisit our online scheduler at uca.mywconline.com, click on the appointment you would like to cancel, and click the red “CANCEL THIS APPOINTMENT” button at the bottom of the pop-up window.
Alternatively, you can call the Writing Center at (501)450-5123 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to cancel your appointment.
What can I expect at my appointment?
Every session goes a bit differently, but we recommend you come prepared with your assignment sheet, current draft, sources, and specific questions about what you want to work on. The tutor will start by asking you about these things. This video might give you an idea of what to expect:
