The Student Academic Success Center offers a variety of assistance to UCDavis students for writing across the curriculum. Our workshops offer strategies and reviews of the writing process from prewriting through revision for both in-class and out-of-class essays.
Our writing specialists and tutors also work individually with students on writing assignments for any course offered by UCDavis. In your writing appointment, we can help you understand the assignment or prompt and offer strategies for brainstorming, prewriting, organizing, developing, and revising your essay or term paper.
You may use SASC Writing Services at any point in your writing process, but we can help you most effectively if you allow ample time to follow up on our feedback and revise your work well before the due date.
Please sign up for an appointment to review your essay during Specialists' Same Day appointments.
Offerings for workshops change each quarter. Workshops are offered for all writing students, Analytical Writing Placement preparations, and upper division students. Additionally workshops are offered for all ESL students, and specifically for upper division and transfer ESL students.
