Starting Week 2, the Writing Center (WRC) is open to serve NMC students for the Spring 2023 semester, offering both in-person and Zoom appointments during our M-F hours (in our main location in SH 221) and our Sunday hours (in our satellite location in the NMC Library/Innovation Center). If you are a student trying to self-schedule an appointment for our opening week, please check back closer to Mon 1/23, when our staff returns to work in our main location.

WRC sessions are typically 30 minutes, but they can last from 20 minutes to longer, as necessary. For instructions on what information students need to provide when requesting an online appointment via email, please refer to our Contact Us page.

NMC students can self-schedule an appointment via MySuccess. Or they can drop by in-person during our M-F weekday hours in Scholars Hall 221, to book an advance appointment (or to see if there's walk-in availability).  Otherwise, they can contact us (via phone or email) during our M–F weekday business hours.

We're here to support students. If you have any questions, we look forward to your inquiry and will respond as soon as we can. Thank you in advance for your patience.
