The University Writing Center was able to arrange special-project funding from the Office of Online Learning and Academic Innovation, focusing primarily on students enrolled in GW’s online courses.
Hours of operation are Tuesday2-8PM, Wednesday 12-6, and Thursday 12-6. Our summer session extends from Wednesday, June 3 to Thursday, August 13.
Scheduling can be handled through our online system at gwu.mywconline.com. Students currently have access to two appointments per week, with one hour of appointments per day. Appointments are available in 25- and 50-minute sessions. All conferencing appointments through the University Writing Center are available free to current members of the GW community.
Appointments for Students in Online Courses
Appointments for students enrolled in online courses–and we have a few of those this summer within the program–can be made up to one week (7 days) in advance. These meetings involve a collaborative discussion over the phone, of writing shared through e-mail. Students receive instructions for sending materials and contacting the Center upon making the appointment.
Appointments for Students in On-Campus Courses
Our funding agreement also allows us to offer appointments to students in on-campus courses, once we’ve allowed for priority scheduling for online students. Appointments for students taking face-to-face classes can be made within 48 hours before a given session and are also available on a walk-in basis, if openings remain.
General questions from students can be addressed via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will respond to e-mail during our operating hours.
