When we conduct workshops on campus, they are always held in our presentation room:
Clark Hall 124. However, we are not offering in-person workshops in fall 2021 due
to the COVID-19 pandemic.
How can I get a proof of my workshop attendance?
Provided you attended the full duration of the workshop (and did not leave early),
any attendee who requires proof of attendance should complete the form link here http://bit.ly/wcworkshopconfirm. The request will be actioned within 1-3 working days.
How many different types of workshops do you offer?
We offer one-hour interactive workshops on 20+ topics such as Basic APA Style, Body
Paragraphs, and many more. You can find virtual workshops videos and more information
about our workshops by visiting our workshop topics page.
What is the late policy?
Arrive on time. Late-comers will not be seated once instruction has started. Workshops
start promptly at the scheduled time. If you are late, you will not be able to attend
the workshop. No exceptions.
What is the cancellation policy?
You can cancel your workshop registration at any time in our online reservation system. So our facilitators know who will be attending each workshop session, we ask you to cancel your registration if you are unable to attend. If you do so far enough in advance, this will also allow another student to take your seat.
The Writing Center reserves the right to cancel any workshop that does not have a minimum of five people enrolled 24 hours before the presentation start time.
When you sign up for the workshop, you agree to our policies. Please read our Writing Center policies and procedures.
