A student does not need a referral to meet with a Hixon Writing Center (HWC) tutor, and in many cases simply talking with students about the value of the HWC and encouraging a student to visit will be sufficient. However, there may be times in which a stronger approach is desired, and for that reason we have a more formal way of referring a student to work with a tutor.
This referral form allows you to require or encourage a student to visit the HWC. You will fill out the PDF and either email it to the student or print it and hand it to the student. It is then the student’s responsibility to make an appointment and work with a tutor. When a student brings this form to a tutorial, he/she will receive a form that confirms the visit, which can then be given to you as confirmation of the visit.
