Will anyone know that I’ve come to the Writing Center?

That’s up to you!

Every time you come to the Writing Center for a tutoring session, you and the tutor will work together to write up a report outlining your next steps. You’ll always receive a copy of that report for your records, and that report will be available to Writing Center staff so that they can continue to help you no which tutor you work with. Like all of your academic records, these reports are protected under FERPA.

However, if you also want us to let your professor know that you put in some extra effort on this assignment, just let us know and we’ll send your professor a copy of the report! Professors want to read your best possible work, and they typically appreciate knowing that you’re using all available resources to succeed! Who knows, they may even offer you extra credit!
