Honors College Writing Center

The Honors College is proud to be able to offer individualized writing support for first-year students. The Writing Center in the Honors College is designed to support first-year students in their transition, with workshops, handouts, and individual writing tutoring. Adjusting to regular, varied writing assignments at the university is often a difficult process. In the Honors College, students write in every core class.

Individual Consultations

In light of the COVID-19 outbreak and UNLV’s move to remote instruction, the Honors College Writing Center can no longer conduct in-person instruction. We will, however, continue to offer our services for the remainder of the semester. Your dedicated writing consultants, Alexis and Clayton, will continue to offer writing consultation services tailored to your accessibility and instruction needs to the best of our abilities, and we hope that we can be a resource for success during what will inevitably be a difficult time for our community.

Spring 2020 Appointments

Video conferencing options will be available as much as possible. In other cases, Alexis and Clayton will be able to perform Online Writing Lab appointments (OWLs) as a way to continue providing feedback on student paper drafts. The student will set an appointment and when instructed they will send a file of their draft to their chosen consultant for feedback. As always, appointments will be on a first come, first served basis. Please plan accordingly.

How to Sign Up

Students can schedule a virtual writing consultation through Campus Connect;

For assistance using this system, see our step-by-step guide: Making a Writing Center Appointment via Campus Connect.

Depending on your preferred method of instruction, video conference or OWL, your appointment time may not strictly apply to your appointment. Your writing consultants will be working with a “first in, first out” strategy to ensure that feedback is not delayed. Selecting the earliest available appointment slot will ensure feedback is received as quickly as possible. Turnaround times are expected to be 36-48 hours depending on demand.
