Welcome to the Academic Success Centre at UFV!

What We Do

The Academic Success Centre (formerly called the Writing Centre) offers one-on-one feedback on the writing that you are doing for your UFV courses and on your subject-area content. 

Writing Assistance:

Centre instructors can assist you in understanding various writing assignments, such as research essays and reports, annotated bibliographies, literature reviews, lab reports, critical reviews, resumes, and application and cover letters.

Centre instructors can assist you at various stages of your writing process with, for example, understanding your assignment requirements, narrowing topics, identifying research strategies, developing ideas, organizing material, drafting, and revising.

Centre instructors do not proofread your written work; rather, they offer expert advice that you can apply to your writing. 

Subject-area Assistance:

You will be able to request help from Peer Tutors in a range of subject-area specialities. Please check back as we update our website to include more detail about this. If you need some assistance in a subject area sooner than that, please call us at 605-504-4282 to arrange an appointment. 

MAY 2015: We will have limited hours for tutoring during the first two weeks of the Summer 2015 semester. If you need assistance and no appointments are available, please contact sandra.smith@ufv.ca to arrange a tutoring session.

Rules of Use

Consultations are private and confidential. Students have access to one hour of consultations per week. Students cannot make two appointments on the same day. Please bring your instructor’s guidelines and a printed copy of your assignment (You can also print in the Academic Success Centre if you have a scheduled appointment).
