When you refer a student to the University Writing Center, it is important to tell her/him what part of her/his writing needs attention.

When students come in for a tutorial, they are required to have a question or area of concern to direct the focus of the tutorial.

Tutors will not evaluate or proofread student work. Instead, tutors address the questions and concerns that students bring and teach students how to correct errors.    

If you would like a form to print and give to students, you will find a document linked below. Some professors find it useful to staple the Referral Form to students' work as they return it.
