University Center for Excellence in Writing

ATTENTION: The UCEW is offering mainly online appointments. Select in-person appointments are available with John, but all other tutors meet online only. We have a single schedule for all campuses.

Please watch the short video below learn how we can help you. The links below also explain how to make an appointment. Note also that if you have an in-person appointment, please go to the second floor of the breezeway to the south entrance to the building. 



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 must be masked and will receive socially distant help. Let us know if you have questions or concerns!

Since we will not have front desk staff during this time to take your phone calls, please email the Director, Jeff Galin, at jgalin@fau.edu or the Assistant Director, Kate Polak, at kpolak@fau.edu if you do not receive an invitation to join your consultation, or you have any questions or concerns. You may also call 561-297-3498 for more immediate assistance.

The UCEW will resume normal operations when FAU classes meet on campus again.
