Writing assistance available for students at CADE

Dear Faculty,

If your students are writing papers for your course, they’re welcome to come to the Writing Center at CADE for assistance; however, you need to have provided permission. The easiest way to do that is to send an email to CADE@oneonta.edu indicating that any of your students are able to receive assistance with their papers from our staff of writing tutors (we call this “blanket permission”). You’re also able to simply offer permission on a case-by-case basis.

 If you have questions, please feel free to call CADE at x3010.
