The center takes appointments, but consultants can also assist walk-in students on a first-come, first-serve basis. For a successful 30-minute consultation, students are encouraged to bring assignment sheets, hard-copy notes and drafts, and any other needed material, and should be prepared to discuss assignments with consultant.

Writing Center Policies

  • Only currently enrolled students may use Writing Center services
  • Students may only have one (1) scheduled appointment at a time
  • Students will receive a maximum of one (1) appointment for instructional assistance per day, but may request extra time as a drop-in at the discretion of a Writing Consultant.
  • If a student is more than 10 minutes late for an appointment, he/she forfeits the session and will be considered a “no-show.”

About Us

Mission Statement

Open to all students, the Bakersfield College Writing Center allows students to craft their writing process in all areas, from invention and structure to style and mechanics. The student-led sessions will be facilitated by a writing consultant who, along with the student, aims to identify strengths and weaknesses in the student work with the goal of gaining life-long skills for writing independence.
