Writing Center




Message from the Director

We are pleased to announce that in-person appointments will once again be offered during the Fall 2021 semester. As directed by Chancellor Reddy's Executive Order, all students will need to wear a mask in the Writing Center during one-to-one in-person sessions.

We will also continued to offer online appointments as an option for students who would prefer to avoid meeting in person. All online appointments will be conducted virtually through our WCOnline platform. At the time of your appointment, all you will need to do is log into our WCOnline schedule, click on your appointment time, and choose the line "Start or Join Online Consultation." This will take you to the online room, where a consultant will meet you.To limit technology issues, please take a moment to visit the online services tab on our website.

Please also don't hesitate to email me with questions at mbalk@uccs.edu. 

I want to thank you for using the Excel Writing Center, and want you to know we are committed to providing you the same high quality academic support that we always have.  We will always be here to help you succeed!

Matthew Balk, Ph.D.
