The USD Writing Center

The University of San Diego’s Writing Center is an inclusive community serving undergraduate and graduate students from all disciplines. In one-on-one consultations, our experienced consultants provide critical reflection and constructive feedback during the multiple stages of the writing process, from planning to composing to revision. In this process, it is our goal to help students develop strategies for improving their writing, for gaining confidence in their writing, and for developing educational independence.

The Writing Center consulting services are free and by appointment. Sessions usually last 45 minutes to one hour. All class levels and graduate students are welcome to make appointments. Note: The Writing Center has revised hours for the Fall 2020 semester and is only offering online appointments at this time.

The Writing Center will open for the Spring Semester on Feb. 10th 2021.
