Undergraduate Writing Support Program
supports UCR undergraduate students through writing consultations and workshops. Our writing tutors are undergraduate students from multiple majors across the UCR campus. We can provide you writing assistance in any academic discipline during any stage of your writing process, pre-writing to finalizing drafts. Writing tutors are a complement to in-class instruction and instructor office hours. How To Prepare for Your Appointment
In addition to assignment-based writing support, our professional staff members provide targeted support to students applying to graduate/professional school, for prestigious scholarships/fellowships, Undergraduate Research Journal submissions, and Honors theses.
To schedule an appointment for writing support, please call the ARC at (951) 827-3721 or click on the blue Accudemia Login button below to access our digital appointment system. Only currently enrolled UCR undergraduate students may meet with ARC tutors.
