Undergraduate Writing Center


Writiing Support Program

The Undergraduate Writing Center provides writing support to all UCR undergraduate students through writing consultations and workshops. We provide writing assistance in any academic discipline during any stage of the writing process. Writing tutors are a complement to in-class instruction and instructor office hours. The Writing Center also works with faculty to develop course-specific writing support partnerships.

In addition to assignment-based writing support, the Writing Center provides targeted support to students applying for prestigious scholarships/fellowships, Undergraduate Research Journal submissions, and Honors theses.

Appointments are one-on-one and last about an hour. To schedule an appointment for writing support, please call the ARC at (951) 827-3721 or click on the Web Gateway icon on the left to access our digital appointment system. Only currently enrolled UCR undergraduate students may meet with ARC tutors. Graduate students should contact the Graduate Writing Center by going to gwrc.ucr.edu.

**Please note that students may only make two appointments per week for writing assistance.**
