The Writing Center provides free one-on-one tutoring to students who are currently enrolled in any course at Richland College.

During the fall and spring semesters, tutoring is available six days a week on an appointment basis. Drop-in tutoring is offered at various times throughout the week as well. Since the Writing Center has over 1,600 visits per semester, students are highly encouraged to make an appointment with the Writing Center tutors.

You can make an appointment or check for "drop-in" availability, by calling 972-238-6226 or visiting us at the front desk in The Learning Center (TLC).


The mission of the Writing Center is to offer a collaborative environment that empowers students as independent thinkers and writers across a myriad of disciplines and genres. This undertaking reflects The Learning Center’s larger mission to bridge the path to student success by emphasizing the connections between classroom success, community involvement, and goal achievement.
