The Computer Lab in the Writing Center

Policy Changes

As of Winter 2013, the Writing Center's computer lab policies changed. The computers in the lab are reserved for Mt. SAC students using specific Writing Center services. This means that a student will be able to use a computer if he/she is seeing a tutor, working on a DLA or other grammar software, or attending a workshop. Here are the specific policy changes:

    • Students must use one of the services of the Center (tutoring, directed learning activities, grammar software, workshops) to use the computer lab in the Writing Center.
    • Students can use the computer lab for an unlimited amount of time on the day they are using a specific Center service.
    • Students with scheduled tutoring appointments can use the lab the week before, during, and after the week in which they have an appointment scheduled.
    • Students cannot use the Center solely for the purpose of printing assignments.

Computer Lab Features

Our computers feature word processing, Excel spreadsheets, Internet research, and access to library databases for research. We also have a variety of interactive software to help students with grammar, essay development, and effective argumentation. Students can work with these programs on a self-study basis or at the direction of a faculty member.

Please read through our Policies and Procedures of the Writing Center, including the Computer Lab if you have any questions.
