ARC Appointments

Need help writing a paper or preparing for tests? Through one-on-one and group consultations, trained peer consultants can help you Read. Write. Learn . . . Better.

The Academic Resource Center (ARC) provides writing help and academic coaching at no cost to undergraduate students and is housed on the first floor of the Murdock Library. ARC Hours are Monday-Thursday 1:00pm-10:00pm and Friday 12:00pm-4:00pm. We offer 25- or 50- minute appointments.

Graduate and George Fox Connect students can get assistance from the Portland Writing Center.
