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:
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.
