Who can request help from the ARC?
Anyone can request help. You are especially encouraged to ask for help if you are a non-native English speaker, a student with a referral from your director or teacher, have a documented learning difference, or if you need to resubmit your MPR proposal. Fill out a Request for MPR Support form and submit to ARC.

Can I use the onsite Writing Lab to get help with my written proposal?
No, the Writing Lab doesn't work with MPR Proposals. Please fill out and submit a Request for MPR Support form and an MPR tutor will provide 1:1 tutoring (for both writing and presentation skills) throughout your proposal writing process. Please note the ARC must receive this request at least 7 business days before your MPR presentation.

Can I use the Speaking Lab to practice delivering my presentations?
