Writing and Research Advice for Transfer Students and Returning Adults

The Writing Center

The Counseling Center provides individual counseling, couple counseling, workshops and group programs at no charge to Cleveland State University students. We also offer consultation and other services to the university community. For more information on the workshops listed below and other programs offered through the Counseling and Testing Center, please call 687-2277 and talk to one of our staff. the Academic Survival Skills Workshops.



As I gave writing workshops for WAC courses in many disciplines, I kept seeing students who did not know how to do university-level research and university-level writing. I hope that this web site will offer you a private, easy chance to catch up or refresh your skills. Please feel welcome to make an appointment in the Writing Center to have someone go over your writing or research (extension 6981). Feedback on this web site is also very welcome -

Please click on the following links to get a handout or exercise on a topic that fits your needs. The handouts are designed in terms of experiences students relate in the Writing Center.
