University Center for Excellence in Writing

The UCEW offers both in-person and online appointments.

  • While most tutors will offer both in-person and online options, select tutors will be available only for online consultations. Make sure to choose "Online Appointment" if you want that option.

  • If you have an in-person appointment, please go to the General Classroom South (GS) building, room 215. To get to the second floor of the GS building, use the stairs off of the breezeway or the elevators on the southeast side of the building.

  • Select help for more information. 

Watch the video below to learn how we can help you. The links below the video explain how to make an appointment. 



The UCEW is excited to announce that starting in Summer 2020, all appointments will be managed in a new software program that will be much easier to use and supports online appointments. All students will need to register for an account the first time using your FAU email address.  

To accommodate as many students as possible, the following policies will apply:

  • All students are eligible for 1 (one) appointment per day

  • Appointment times will be limited to 40 minutes

  • All students can book a maximum of 2 (two) appointments per week

  • Appointments may be made up until the scheduled start time; however, it is best to make your appointment no later than 15 minutes before the allotted time so that your consultant will notice it in time to join your session.
  • Please note that if you have an in-person appointment, you will come to the UCEW. You are expected to wear a mask at all times while in the center and will receive socially distant help. We will hand you a mask if you are not wearing one when you come in the door. Let us know if you have questions or concerns!

If you have questions or concerns, please email the Director, Dr. Jeff Galin, at jgalin@fau.edu or the Assistant Director, Kimberly Bain, at kraines@fau.edu. You may also call 561-297-3498 for more immediate assistance.

The UCEW is now meeting both in-person and online. Please make sure to select your preferred mode when you register for a time slot.
