Supporting Student Success

8.3 The Writing Center

A free service for all Fordham students, the Writing Center encourages and helps improve student writing of all levels and across all disciplines. Our aim is to provide personalized instruction that will enhance students’ prose and help them become more confident writers. To ensure that students reach these goals, we offer up to 90 minutes of one-on-one instruction per week, during which we will assist in all stages of writing, from brainstorming, to drafting, to revising. Additionally, our tutors—a select group of masters and doctoral students—offer collaborative consultations and provide free workshops on academic writing.

Students can register and make appointments at fordham.edu/wc. If students cannot attend their session, they should log on to the online sign-up site and cancel their appointment. If students are not present at the start of their appointment time, the session will be made available to other students. Walk-ins are also welcome whenever space is available.

Students should bring a hard copy of their assignment and be prepared to work with their tutor.
