Forms & Resources
Forms and resources for the Oshkosh Scholar.
The UW Oshkosh Writing Center
All UW Oshkosh students are eligible for one-to-one conferencing at the Writing Center. Free, confidential tutoring is designed to help students work through assignments and gain additional writing skills. Trained peer consultants can assist students at any stage of the composition process, from brainstorming for topics to fine-tuning a final draft. They will assist students with issues like grammar and mechanics not by marking up the paper, but by helping students identify patterns of error and helping them learn how to avoid those errors. The Writing Center now offers e-mail tutoring to online and distance education students.
More information can be found at uwosh.edu/wcenter.
Please read the Oshkosh Scholar Style Guide.
