Workshop Schedule

The Writing Center is pleased to offer a variety of workshops to help students to improve their writing, study, and life skills.


Note:  Registration for any workshop MUST be done at least 24 to 48 hours before the day of the workshop.

Participants need to be on time for workshops.  Participants who are late to a workshop may not be permitted entry into the workshop since it will interrupt the session.

Recordings and PowerPoint presentations for workshops are not available for distribution.  However, students may take notes and ask the presenter questions during the workshop presentations.


Note on Enrollment in LST-606:

Students who use any of the Writing Center's services may be automatically enrolled in the LST-606 noncredit course. Students will not be charged for the course, nor will it affect their GPA. It is used to document usage of services to help with apportionment funding for tutoring/learning services. For more information, click here.
