Earning Credit in WR 380 & WR 382

  • You must spend a minimum of 24 hours in the Writing Center during the term in which you are enrolled, whether your term is 16 weeks or 8 weeks long.
  • Begin spending time in the Center at the start of the semester by meeting frequently with the English instructors on duty. You can talk to the instructors about your assignments, your readings, and any aspect of your writing process.
  • Spend time in the Center throughout the semester so that you make use of the resources to study and concentrate on improving your writing skills.
  • You may meet with English instructors as often as you want, but in order to earn credit, you must hold a minimum of four formal conferences with English instructors in the Center.
    A formal conference meets these criteria:
    • The conference is held in the Writing Center with an instructor on duty in the Writing Conference.
    • During the conference, the student presents the classroom instructor's written assignment sheet as well as the student's written work in progress toward the assignment.
    • During the conference, the student presents the classroom instructor's signature form so that the Writing Conference instructor can sign and date as evidence of the conference.
    • The signatures represent only one conference per assignment.
  • It is your responsibility to check up on your record of hours and formal conferences. These records are kept at the Writing Center counter, and the staff there will be happy to show you your records.
