In an effort to service non-traditional students like transfer students, the writing center has created a satellite station in the Off-campus and Non-traditional Student Services Center. The University Writing Center coaches offer their services noon to 2 p.m. Mondays and 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesdays. NIU is looking at ways it can connect with and help transfer students in order to increase their retention rate.
