Writing Center

The Writing Center at the University of San Diego is dedicated to the assistance of the campus community in honing their skills as writers.

Our mission is to have every person who receives a consultation to gain confidence and notable improvements in their ability to write, regardless of the subject material or “style” of writing required. Out staff members’ goal is not to merely “edit” students’ work; rather, we seek to engage in a one-on-one collaboration and exchange of ideas.

The Writing Center tutoring services are free and by appointment, with drop-ins accommodated if appointment slots are open. Tutoring sessions usually last 45 minutes to one hour. At this time we are unable to provide tutoring to online students. Note: The Writing Center is not open during finals, Intersession or Summer Session.
