Graduate Resources

General Overview

The Graduate Writing Center (GWC) serves UVU students, faculty, staff, and the Orem community working on graduate school applications (entrance essays and GRE prep), graduate writing assignments, dissertations, theses, and professional documents. Graduate Writing tutors offer one-on-one sessions as well as workshops.


As with our other tutoring services, the Graduate Writing Center is a free service that can help writers at all stages of the writing process. While we will gladly address questions of grammar and style during tutorials, we are not able to accommodate editing requests.

GRE Writing Preparation

The Writing Center provides free GRE Writing preparation workshops three times a semester. Workshops are available on a first-come, first-serve basis and fill up quickly.

Under the direction of the Writing Center Coordinator, trained tutors provide 2 two-hour sessions each month:

  • Writing Section - Issue Essay and Argument Essay
  • Verbal Section - Vocabulary and Reading Comprehension

Each workshop will also include a practice portion. Our staff scores all practice essays through a double-blind system and provides written feedback on how to improve scores.
