Learn about Writing Fellows

Don’t go into the application process blindly – read the description of the Writing Fellows process and read the expectations on our website. Understand the objectives of the program as well as what will be required of you. Make sure you will have the time to fulfill the obligations that come with being a Writing Fellow.

English 310: Writing and Tutoring is required for all first-semester Writing Fellows. It is a three credit course taught Tuesdays and Thursdays 12:05pm–1:20pm. This course fulfills the university’s Advanced Writing requirement (although departments may still require their specific advanced writing course).

We require at least a two-semester commitment. Writing Fellows typically work sixty hours each semester and receive $9.75/hr the first semester, with increases each semester following. You may be a Writing Fellow and work at another campus job. However, your combined hours may never exceed 20 hours per week, except during 4 weeks of high-volume tutoring in which Writing Fellows are permitted 25 combined hours. Flexibility in a second on-campus job is fairly essential.

Be aware of the minimum requirements:

  • At least two completed college semesters since high school graduation
  • Student status for Fall 2019

Note: We are looking for applicants from all majors.

Final decisions will be emailed sometime soon after Thanksgiving break.
