Now Accepting Writing Consultant Applications for Fall 2015

Interested in working at the University Writing Center? Apply to enroll in our tutor education course ENC4275/5276: Theory & Practice of Tutoring Writing. Please go to the How to Become a Tutor page for more information about the requirements and the application process. As the Writing Center provides support to students from first-year to graduate from across the disciplines, we’re especially eager to recruit students from diverse majors and language backgrounds. For students in a STEM major, the UWC also invites applications for a tuition award to cover the cost of the required tutor-education course, ENC 4275: Theory & Practice of Tutoring Writing, as well as the cost of textbooks for this course. The application for the Atkins Endowed Award for STEM University Writing Center Tutor Education is provided here, and is due by May 22, 2015.

Faculty: Refer Students to the UWC

The UWC now offers an easy way for faculty to refer students to us for ongoing writing development. Referred students can meet with the same consultant at a regularly-scheduled time each week during the semester, to focus not merely on fixing a single piece of writing, but on building skills for future writing tasks.

Class Presentation Requests

UCF faculty can request a presentation from a Writing Center representative who will provide a brief presentation about UWC services. Please visit our Presentation Request page and specify whether your location is in Cocoa, Daytona, Orlando, or Rosen.

UWC via Adobe Connect

The UWC offers Adobe Connect as an online consultation mode, so you can meet with a consultant from anywhere.

From any computer with internet access, you should be able to:

  • Speak with your consultant via audio connection
  • Revise your paper along with your consultant via screen sharing
  • Have instant access to our handouts and other resources

We strongly recommend using a headset with attached microphone for Adobe Connect consultations. If you don’t have a headset and microphone, you can get full audio on our Connect Consultation Station on the UCF Daytona Beach campus. Select Distance Consulting for more information on Adobe Connect sessions.
