Courses for which CLAS does not provide content-specific services are still supported by our Writing and Academic Skills services.
Writing appointments and drop-in sessions are available for any writing at any stage of the process, and there is no limit to the number of writing sessions a student can attend other than the required thirty-minute break between sessions with a tutor. This means you can talk to a tutor about a writing tasks even before you have started doing any writing.
Academic Skills services are geared towards helping students study better. Workshops are available for students looking to have a general discussion about challenges and strategies around a specific topic, and appointments are available to help students troubleshoot specific aspects of their classes.
