A student support service available to students at Allen Community College is the Writing Center, a free tutoring service that helps students with the writing they are assigned in their college courses, as well as other kinds of writing they do.
The Writing Center is in the Student Success Center on the Iola campus. Assistance also is available to all students who attend Allen classes in Iola, Burlingame or any outreach site through the online writing lab (OWL).
Tutors frequently help students with:
- reports and research papers
- essays for composition and literature course
- book reviews
- article summaries
- lab reports
- speeches and oral presentations
- resumes and cover letters for employment
- university and scholarship applications
