The CGU Writing Center provides 1 free consultation (either in-person or on-line or Skype) every week for all CGU students, faculty, and staff.

If you cannot make your appointment, please cancel more than 24 hours ahead so that another student may have the space.

All types of appointments are made through the same on-line appointment system. See below.
