Which lab should I go to if I need help with a paper for my literature class?

You should visit JH - 216, The College Level Writing Center.

Do I need to make an appointment for tutoring?

You do not have to make an appointment. You can just walk in.

The reading lab closes at 5:00PM Monday-Thursday, but I am only on campus in the evenings. Where do I go to get reading lab hours?

When the Reading Lab is closed, you can use the lab in Juniper Hall 229. Just check off your reading course when you sign in to receive credit for your hours.

Can I just drop off a paper for review and pick it up later?

Our Writing Center is a learning center. Tutors will work with students to edit, revise, and plan papers, but this is not a place for students to simply “drop off” papers to be edited.

How many lab hours do I need for developmental English classes?

You will need 14 hours of lab time per semester. You should aim to spend about one hour per week in the lab.

How many hours do I need for developmental reading classes?

You will need 10 hours of lab time per semester. We recommend spending about an hour per week.
