Hours and Accessibility

Hours of Staff Availability

The administrative offices for the College of Education, including the Doctoral Support Center for Writing & Research Excellence, are open and operational from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and are normally closed on Saturdays, Sundays, and annually established university holidays.

However, the DSC reserves two days at the end of each semester period for departmental planning, during which time the normal review of student work will be suspended. These days will be announced via email to doctoral students, and announcements will be posted on Blackboard.

Other than during these brief periods at the end of each semester, the DSC coaches are available for student consultations and to review drafts during all regularly scheduled workdays.
Appointments may be scheduled outside of normal working hours upon request.
