Welcome to the Writing Center
The Cabrillo College Writing Center serves all students enrolled at the school and currently taking courses in which written work is required. The Center tutoring staff strives to provide students with composition and critical thinking skills to enable them to compose successful essays and assignments on their own. We work closely with learning communities across campus, ACES and STARS, to provide pre-transfer level students with support in development of writing and critical thinking skills that will ensure their academic progress over the long term.
Students also have access to Online Writing Lab, or OWL, and may submit papers online to an experienced tutor who will read your paper and respond with substantive feedback within two days. Finally, we offer English 100 grammar labs to those students, including STARS students, enrolled in an English 100 composition course.
The Center, located on the Aptos campus (behind and upstairs from the library in Building 1000), boasts a lab of thirty computers for student work and Internet access for academic study and projects. There is also ESL Room, where ESL students and others are invited to work quietly at tables and computers. Students are asked to sign into our database when visiting the Writing Center. On the first visit a student will register and create an account. Thereafter, students log into the Center to use the computers, the workspace, and/or to request tutoring. We look forward to welcoming our students and to helping you successfully reach your academic and career goals.
