To participate in an online consultation, EMAIL the Writing Center your draft as a .doc or .docx file attachment. Additionally, answer the questions listed below in your email to help our consultants give you the best feedback.
If you submit a paper more than four pages long, we reserve the right to review a four-page section of your paper in addition to your Works Cited or References list. We will add comments on the first four pages that you can apply to the entire draft. Tell us in your email if there are four pages other than the first four you want us to review.
Provide a short description of the assignment or upload the assignment sheet.
Provide the assignments due date.
Provide citation requirements if any (i.e., MLA, APA, etc.)
Provide your first/home language (i.e., English, Spanish, German, etc.)
Provide the current writing process stage (i.e., first draft, outline, revised draft, etc.)
Provide a brief description of the help needed (i.e., developing a thesis statement, developing an idea, adhering to the assignment requirements, etc.)
We respond to emails during our regular tutoring hours. We typically respond to requests within 24 to 48 hours, but please understand that it could take up to three or more days to receive a response during busy times of the semester or during a campus break.
If you have a quick question about citations, grammatical concepts or individual sentences while you work on a project? Post the question on our Facebook page or tweet us, and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can during consulting hours.
