Extra Credit

Some instructors like to encourage their students to use the Writing Resource Center by offering extra credit. Because we respect student privacy, and do not typically report on student visits to the center, here are some ways you can know if your students visited us.

  • Tell the student to ask for a Session Form. It will be the student’s responsibility to give this form to you.
  • Ask the student to write a short reflection about their experience at the center.  Give credit for the reflection, rather than the visit.
  • Encourage students to visit early in their writing process.  Required visits tend to overwhelm the service close to the due date.  If a student waits until right before a paper is due to visit the center, then he or she may not be able to get in.
