Writing Center Frequently Asked Questions

At any stage in your writing process! Many students visit a few times throughout the stages of their writing assignments, from brainstorming to “final check”.

You will meet one-on-one with a Writing Center Consultant (a student peer who has completed Writing Center training). You can expect to discuss your paper with this knowledgeable, friendly peer, who will help you to make decisions and changes to your writing assignments and suggest best practices for your writing process. They may help you to review your assignment prompt(s), read the paper out loud, and plan next steps for you to work on independently.

Generally, no; when instructors require students to visit the Writing Center for a specific assignment, they may formally request visit records. In that case, we will send the instructor complete visit notes. You will always receive an emailed copy of your visit notes after each Writing Center session, and should feel free to forward this information to your instructor.

The Writing Center offers writing assistance for all Heidelberg University classes. You can check the informational guide at the top of the Writing Center schedule to see Consultant majors and specialties.

Please contact the Academic Support Coordinator regarding alternative scheduling options.
