Information for Prospective Students 

The Writing Center is pleased to offer two free sessions to students applying to CU Denver or CU Anschutz. Whether you’re a high school student applying to a CU program for the first time, a student hoping to transfer, or a prospective graduate student, we can help with scholarship essays, personal statements, resumes, or any other application materials. Bring any of your materials—work in progress or just the prompts—and we will help with brainstorming, revising, and standing out as a unique applicant.

Information for Alumni

To help transition alumni into their academic or working future, the Writing Center has established a two-session transition policy: Within one year from the time of graduation, alumni can schedule two free sessions with the Writing Center. These sessions must be focused on materials for hiring (such as cover letters or resumes) or continuing education (such as personal statements, teaching philosophies, or application materials). After these two complimentary sessions, alumni may choose to have additional sessions for a fee.  Continuing sessions are available in the following packages via donation to the Writing Center.

  • Friend of the Center: for a donation of $100, alumni may receive two (2) additional Writing Center sessions
  • Sponsor of the Center: for a donation of $250, alumni may receive six (6) additional Writing Center sessions
  • Patron of the Center: for a donation of $500, alumni may receive fifteen (15) additional Writing Center sessions 

Donations are tax-deductible. Please see our Give to the Writing Center page for instructions.
