Program FAQ

How do I make an appointment to get help on a paper?

The Writing Center provides support for any DU student, faculty, or staff members on any form of writing. You may make an appointment for a consultation by calling us at 303-871-7456 or by using our online scheduling system. DU Faculty and staff can make appointments by calling the Writing Center at 303-871-7456. We will happily see writers on a walk-in basis if a consultant is available.

For more information, view the Writing Center page.

What if I didn't take or pass the required writing courses my first year at DU?

While students are encouraged to take the required writing courses the first year, if students are off sequence they can take the courses during the summer or fall. We encourage students to take them as soon as possible, because you must have passed these classes to take the ASEM course, and all are required for graduation. For questions about your individual situation, contact Richard Colby

What if I have a comment or concern about my writing class?

Students should feel free to discuss both positive and negative experiences with the Assistant Director for First Year Writing, Richard Colby
