The University Writing Commons
The University Writing Commons has moved all appointments online for the remainder of the spring 2020 semester. Please see our WCONLINE page for more details.
The University Writing Commons works with you at any stage of the writing process and we offer two formats for NAU students.
Mountain campus students have access to nine University Writing Commons locations on the Flagstaff campus. All sessions are face-to-face. We also have online hours for our statewide and online students. Scroll down for further information including hours and how to visit us.
The UWC offers weekly writing appointments with the same Writing Assistant through our ENG 100 course. In an effort to support more NAU students, students seeking writing support outside of ENG 100 are limited to scheduling 3 recurring appointments at a time and are not guaranteed to work with the same Writing Assistant week-to-week.

The University Writing Commons and Academic Success Centers are both delighted to offer online appointments to support student writing.
The University Writing Commons provides online writing support for upper division undergraduate students who are enrolled in an online course or Statewide program and for all graduate students. Writing Assistants are Graduate Teaching Assistants in the Department of English and are best utilized to support more complex issues in writing, such as organizing and writing disciplinary research papers, and rhetorical awareness; these issues are often experienced in upper division courses.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are holding all appointments with our Writing Assistants online for the remainder of spring 2020. To make a synchronous appointment using our online platform, please visit our WCONLINE user-instructions page.
The Academic Success Centers offer online appointments for all undergraduate students, regardless of course delivery mode. Writing tutors with the Academic Success Centers are best prepared to provide support for needs such as grammar and punctuation, and organizing essays and reports; these are issues commonly experienced in, but not limited to, lower division courses.
