The Writing Center

Writing assistance, through the Writing Center is available to all Cedar Crest students, and peer Writing Consultants can assist students with papers and written assignments for any course or subject. Writing Consultants are committed to fostering academic success by helping students develop and improve their writing skills and helping students learn how to navigate formatting manuals (APA, MLA, and Chicago). Please review the Writing Center policies (below) so that you understand the scope of assistance that may be provided by our Consultants.

 

In the Fall of 2020, Writing Consultants will be working via e-tutoring, providing feedback on students' work asynchronously. Students will need to make eTutoring appointments, using the WCOnline portal below. Students will need to make appointments at least two hours in advance. During the appointment scheduling process, students will submit their writing assignments, in Word DOC format, to the tutor, so the tutor can review the assignment and provide feedback. The student will receive a Word DOC back from the tutor, with comments being used to provide feedback and indicate areas for improvement.

 

First time WC Online users will need to register an account. In addition, you will need to disable your browser’s pop-up blocker by clicking the small red box that appears in the upper-right corner of your screen, then you can click the WCOnline link again. Please review the instructions and policies before scheduling an appointment.

Cancellations and No-Shows

 

Please make sure to cancel scheduled appointments that you will not be able to attend. You can do this by signing into WC Online. This will allow another student, who needs assistance, to use that time slot. If you do not cancel in advance and you do not attend your appointment, you will be marked as a "no show." After three "no shows" your account will be suspended.

 

Tutoring will begin September 8th. The following is the Writing Center schedule for Fall:

 

Tuesdays: Jade 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.; Mackenzie 1:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
