Unable to come to campus? Taking online courses? Try the NEW Online Writing Center!

The Center for Academic Success Online Writing Center provides tutoring for distance learners and non-traditional students who may be unable to use our on-site services. The OWC offers evening and weekend hours to fit your schedule.

We offer two services to meet your needs.

  • Online Meeting - Meet with a tutor in an audio/video/chat room. Speak with the tutor and edit your document in real time. (For this option, please plan to use Firefox or Chrome as your browser.)
  • eTutoring - Upload your paper and assignment sheet. Return for feedback in 24 hours.

Using the Online Writing Center

 Note: Tutors can typically review 4-6 pages in one session. Give yourself time to schedule multiple sessions if you're working on a longer paper or requesting detailed feedback.
