The Writing Center supports the entire UTSA Community, including undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty/staff members. Our experienced tutors provide assistance with each step of the writing process: brainstorming, establishing a thesis, achieving coherence and unity, documenting, and revising. Our tutors do not edit or proofread your paper, but they will help you improve your own editing skills.

You do not need a completed draft before you visit with a tutor. We encourage students to visit early and frequently throughout the writing process. Please bring all necessary materials to your appointment, including your assignment prompt and a clean hard copy of your current draft (double-spaced).

We have two locations to serve you. Visit us at the Main Campus in the JPL building (2.01.12D) or at the Downtown Campus in the Frio Street Building (FS 4.432). We also offer online tutoring.

To make an appointment, go to our web site ( and register for our online scheduling system, WCOnline. Once registered, students can see our schedule and make appointments. Walk-ins are still welcome, but they must also register before seeing a tutor.

If you have any questions about our scheduling system or about the tutoring process, please call the Writing Center at (210)458-6086 or email me at

We look forward to seeing you in The Writing Center.
