The UWC will OPEN for online sessions on Monday, March 23!

The UWC will be closed through Sunday, March 22. We'll open for online appointments on Monday, March 23, with our full team of UWC consultants.

Try online consulting! We can help you with your writing project no matter where you are (and no matter where we are). You can use our UWC online scheduler to reserve online sessions.

To make your online appointment in the scheduler, click on the "Yes. Schedule Online appointment" option. Before your session, you should log in, click on your session, and click on "START OR JOIN ONLINE CONSULTATION" to make sure you have your microphone and camera options enabled (online sessions work better when we can talk, and even better when we can see each other). After you've got the technology squared away, plan to get back in there a few minutes before your session starts.

If you can't schedule an online session, check out the UWC's Writing Guides and Handouts resources.

New UWC Resources

Working on a rhetorical analysis assignment? The UWC's "Rhetorical Analyses: An Overview" and "Annotated Rhetorical Analysis" resources introduce key terms, concerns, and organizational strategies.

Personal statements and statements of purpose are important, and they are hard to write.

The other resources on our Personal Statements page offer additional help (plus, we'd love to work with you in person: just click on that "Make an Appointment" button).
