The University Writing Center is staffed by undergraduate students majoring in many of the disciplines offered at the University and graduate students in the English department's graduate program.
All undergraduate tutors work in the center by invitation only. Our selection process is conducted in the spring, at which time we send letters to potential candidates based on their GPA. We follow up with a rigorous screening process, complete with interviews and requested writing samples. After completing a three-credit course in the fall or spring, tutors who successfully complete the program training start working in the center the next semester and generally remain employed by the Writing Centers until graduation.
