Writing Center


The Writing Center provides free tutorial support to students whose coursework includes written assignments. The Writing Center, housed on the Clifton campus, enables all students to explore new ideas through writing and achieve success. The support extends across all curriculums, and is not limited to support for writing or English Composition classes.


The Writing Center employs qualified, experienced writing instructors to provide tutoring. These instructors are familiar with the expectations for Cincinnati State writing courses. Students consistently report that Writing Center instructors are friendly, capable, and eager to help.


Although limited walk-in service is available, we encourage students to make an appointment for Writing Center services.

To make an appointment, use the Starfish kiosk in the Writing Center, or use the Starfish tab on your Cincinnati State MyCState online account.
