Online Zoom Consultations

In a face-to-face online appointment, we have the ability to read through your work and provide feedback in real time. This can be beneficial to those who do not feel email is an adequate way to receive feedback as the online format allows for discussion and conversation around the writing. To request an online, face-to-face consultation, please use the link below and fill out the form. You will then be contacted by the Writing Center with additional instructions. This allows us to work with you from the safety of your own location.

What do I need to bring to a consultation?
We ask that you bring...

  • a printed copy of your work
  • the assignment
  • grading rubric (if possible)
  • any other information that will give us direction as we tailor our feedback to fit your needs for a particular assignment.

Email Consultations

Sometimes, it may be difficult to schedule an appointment with the Writing Center because of your busy college schedule. Luckily, we are able to work with students through email. Using the link below you can email us your work.

We have a turn-around time of 24-48 business hours for 5 pages (longer papers have a longer turn around time).

We ask that you submit the assignment, rubric, and any other directions that will help us tailor our feedback to fit your needs.

Our hours are from 8am to 5pm Monday to Thursday and 8am to 4pm Friday.

How do I submit my work?

  • Be sure to attach your work as a MSWord document (the following formats work best: .doc, .docx, .rtf) to the link provided below.
  • Once we receive your writing, we provide feedback in the form of comments within the margins of your paper. We will also include a letter in our email response explaining our notes and any areas of praise or concern that stood out to us.
  • Please provide us with your concerns in the writing, your goals in the writing, what you feel is the focus of the revision, and any other questions or directions you might have.
