Centers for Academic Success and Achievement

Welcome to the Writing Center

The Writing Center is located in Helmke Library on the first floor. The center opens during the first week of each semester and closes at the end of the week before final examinations.

The Writing Center's regular hours of operation for the Spring 2015 semester are:

  • Monday - Thursday: 9:00 AM to 5:00 p.m.
  • Friday: 9:00 AM to 3:00 p.m.
  • After hours and weekends by appointment. Click TutorTrac [link] to find open appointment times.
  • E-mail consultations are also available. Click here [link] for more information.

The Writing Center will end our regular semester hours for Spring 2015 at 3 pm on April 24, 2015. During Dead Week (April 27-May 1) we will be open fewer hours so our consultants also have time to study for their exams. Please check TutorTrac for open appointments.

We typically have a higher demand as the end of the semester approaches, so please plan to make consultation appointments as early as possible.

The Writing Center will be closed finals week through the beginning of the summer semester (May 4-17), and will reopen on May 18, 2015.

Faculty members who wish to schedule an orientation should contact the Writing Center by emailing writingcenter@ipfw.edu.


The mission of the IPFW Writing Center is to help writers learn to use language more effectively, produce clear writing appropriate to their purposes and audiences, and develop positive attitudes about writing and about themselves as writers.
