Thank you for your interest in working at the University Writing Center!

We are glad you are interested in working with us. The University Writing Center (UWC) at BU provides over 8,000 in-person and online consultations annually to Baylor writers. As part of Baylor's distinctive Christian mission, the UWC fosters diversity in all of its dimensions, including our hiring practices. We supports writers from all backgrounds, worldviews, languages, and abilities. All writers are respected and welcome to attend and to apply to work here. 

We typically hire in April for the next Fall semester, and in November/December for the next Spring semester.

We have two main positions for undergraduate students (see below for descriptions):

  • Undergraduate Writing Consultants: Our Call for Applications is sent out in Feb/March, and we interview in April each year.
  • Office Assistants. We hire OAs on an ongoing basis. When we have a position available, we post it on the Baylor Student Employment page.

If you would like to become an undergraduate writing consultant, we recommend that you:

  1. Enroll in English 3321: Tutoring Writing. This course is offered in the spring of each year and is open to students at any classification (freshman through senior) and from any major. It can serve as an upper-level elective or a required upper-level English class. Students in this course gain valuable knowledge and hands-on experience studying writing and tutoring theory and pedagogy. They also work as apprentices in the University Writing Center and even tutor on their own toward the end of the semester. When making decisions on which undergraduate consultants to hire, students who have taken this course are given priority and even start at a higher starting salary.
  2. Sign up to be on our list of potential hires. When our Call for Applications is ready in the spring, you can sign up to receive an alert that the applications are ready. If you want to be on this list, send an email to and let us know which position you are interested in.
