Our Services

The function of Wayland’s Writing Center is to assist every WBU member in writing and the methods of research. We can assist you in understanding your writing instructions, defining your paper’s topic, developing a thesis, and improving the organization of your paper, as well as in developing cover letters, resumes, and applications for scholarships and graduate (or professional) work. Whether your tutorial session is face-to-face or online, have the instructor’s writing assignment handy so that it can be easily accessed.


Traditional or Face-to-Face Tutorial

In a traditional tutorial, each client has the opportunity to sit down with one of our tutors for help with a classroom writing assignment or professional-related documents. Each tutorial session is 45 minutes long since we find a timed session produces the best results. If you think that you need extra time, you are welcome to schedule a session more than once on the same day if there are no other appointments at that time.


Online Tutorial

If you would like to utilize our online services, you may submit a paper through WCONLINE (located on our menu to the left). WCONLINE requires you to register for a password and to use your WBU email address. Please include your assignment’s instructions along with the paper. Register as a user in the new WCONLINE program at wbu.mywconline.com to schedule, change, or cancel your face-to-face and online appointments. If you are an online student and you received an email that says "you have successfully modified an appointment," please log in to your WCONLINE account, where you will be able to access our comments in an attachment within your original appointment. Please allow up to 24 hours from the time of your scheduled appointment for a tutor to respond. We look forward to working with you!
