The lab program is a semester long program that is intended to help improve a specific area of writing throughout the entirety of the semester. The purpose is to learn how to write acceptable in and out of class essays and utilize available resources to identify and overcome writing problems. Our labs are focused on writing, not grammar. Therefore, the lab program is writing intensive.

You will be enrolled into the lab program by your teacher if he or she feels you could benefit from it. It is only open for enrollment and registration within the first few weeks of the semester following lab assignments by teachers. To enroll, you'll be given a sheet of paper by your teacher with instructions to come into the Center and sign up.


  • There is only one 30-minute tutorial per week (your lab assignment doesn't count as a regular appointment; therefore, you can make an additional 2 appointments per week)
  • Confirmation of your attendance will be sent to your teacher every week
  • The lab program will continue until the end of the semester or until you are released from the program by your teacher
  • If you miss two (2) lab appointments, you will be automatically dropped from the lab program
  • Failure to meet requirements may affect your class grade
  • You may reschedule your appointment to avoid a miss if it is within the same week and with your lab tutor
