Weekly Enrollment

Students who enroll for the semester come to the Writing Center at the same time each week to work with a trained tutor one-to-one. If you choose to enroll, a tutor will work with you on all of your writing concerns, helping you to use your writing strengths effectively and to learn strategies for overcoming any writing weaknesses. 


Enrollment tutoring is a great way to focus on honing writing skills that will serve you in all of your writing, present and future. Enrollment tutoring is a very popular program and is offered on a first-come, first-served basis. To sign up, visit the Writing Center (room 110 EPB) on the first day of classes each semester.

Enrollment hours: 9:30 - 3:30, Monday-Thursday. To sign up, come to the Writing Center in room 110 EPB on the first day of thes semester, January 21. Come early! Spots fill up fast.

Information for enrolled students:

Thank you for enrolling for the semester in the Writing Center!  Enrolling means that you have a standing appointment at the same time each week to meet with the same tutor.  Your tutor expects you to attend your appointment whether or not you are working on assigned writing at the time.  When you don’t have assigned writing to work on, you and your tutor will still be able to work on your writing skills.  Please plan to attend all of your enrollment appointments!  If you find that you are not able to keep this obligation, please cancel your enrollment to make your spot available to another student on our long waiting list.

We have the following attendance policies.

  • If you need to miss an enrollment appointment, you MUST e-mail the writing center at: writing-center@uiowa.edu
  • If you have more than three missed appointments during the semester, we will ask you to drop your enrollment in order that we may offer a slot to a student from our long waiting list.
