UWC for Undergraduates
Train to Become a Paid Peer Tutor
Are you interested in becoming a paid peer tutor for the UWC? We are currently accepting applications for the required prerequisite course, WRTG 370W: Peer Tutoring, meeting Thursdays during the Winter 2021 semester via Zoom.
For Fall 2020, all EMU undergraduates have three virtual options for writing support:
- Drop in for a consultation using Zoom/Google Meet (half-hour limit)
- Request written feedback (five-page limit)
- Request a Zoom/Google Meet appointment (half-hour limit)
The UWC is accepting Fall 2020 submissions through Monday, December 14. For questions about undergraduate writing support, contact the UWCV Coordinator at [email protected].
Drop-in hours will be closed Wednesday, Nov. 23 through 9:00 am EST Monday, Nov. 30 for the Thanksgiving holiday.
Drop-in hours—immediate, real-time, half-hour consultations through Zoom or Google Meet—are available Monday through Friday for all undergraduates and include both general and specialty writing support. Hours of operation are limited and consultant availability may vary from one week to the next.
Written Feedback & Scheduled Appointments
This form closed for Thanksgiving at 11:59 pm EST on Sunday, Nov. 22 and will reopen at 9:00 am Monday, Nov. 30.
Requests for written feedback will receive a response within 24 - 48 hours for requests submitted Monday through Thursday, and 24 - 72 hours for requests submitted Friday through Sunday. We can comment on up to five pages (roughly 1,500 words) of written text in one submission, and there is a limit of two consultations per student per week (e.g., two written feedback requests, two scheduled appointments, or one of each). This may vary depending on the volume of submissions we receive.
Requests to schedule real-time, Zoom or Google Meet appointments must be made at least 24 hours in advance. You will receive an email from a writing consultant to schedule a time to meet within 24 - 48 hours of requests submitted Monday through Thursday, and 24 - 72 hours for requests submitted Friday through Sunday. Appointments are half an hour and there is a limit of two consultations per student per week (e.g., two written feedback requests, two scheduled appointments, or one of each).
