Writing Centers

The Writing Center at Main summer hours are from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm.  The Writing Center begins June 6.

The Writing Centers are open from the third week of the fall and spring semesters to the end of the second to last week of the fall and spring semesters.  

The Writing Centers offer free, 30-minute appointments with a faculty member to discuss writing assignments. Most students bring in assignments that they're currently working on, although we also help with prewriting, writing a resume, taking essay tests effectively, general study skills and more.  Any writing in any class -- lab reports, research papers, business writing, and so on -- is fair game. Let us help you!

How to Make an Appointment at the Writing Centers

Sign the Writing Center Appointment Book in the following locations:

Call the Center for Learning at (623) 845-3812, or sign up at the front desk, to make an appointment for one 30-minute session per week. You will receive an email confirmation of your appointment time. Students who don't keep appointments (or cancel them, by contacting the Center for Learning) will not be allowed to make another appointment for at least two weeks. For GCC North, appointments can be made by calling (623) 888-7190.

Things to Bring to your Writing Center Appointment:

  • A legible copy of any work you have done
  • The instructor's handout/requirements for the particular assignment

The Writing Center is designed to assist students who are currently working on a single assignment. For on-going help with general English or writing skills  contact the Center for Learning for tutoring services.
