The Learning Resources Center, located in the Millstein Library Building (ML 250), is the home of the Writing Center, Study-Skills Center, Disability Resources Center, and Tutoring Center.

The Center

Provides disability resources for registered students.

Writing Center

The Writing Center is designed to help students during every step of the writing process. A multitude of handouts and books are available for students' use.

Online Writing Center

The Learning Resources Center is offering online paper feedback from Dr. Sears and Mr. Hitt. This resource is free to all Pitt-Greensburg students, but in order to use the Online Writing Center, you must have a Gmail account.

Submit your essay to the Online Writing Center >>

All sections of the above form must be completed before you may submit your essay, and as noted on the form, any vague responses may prevent you from receiving feedback. The average turnaround time for papers is 48-72 hours; however, excessive submissions may push that back. If it will take longer for us to get your paper back to you, you will receive an e-mail with an updated timeframe.

Tutoring Services

The Learning Resources Center offers free tutoring services to all University students. Tutors are trained, faculty-recommended Pitt-Greensburg students who have earned an A in the course. 

Study Strategies

Pamphlets and handouts are available in the rack outside ML 250. One-on-one help is also available.
