Writing Assistance

The Student Success Center has staff available to review student papers, faculty publications, university documents, and other written work.

During sessions with the tutors, individuals may discuss a paper that is in progress. Tutors will offer a critical response to a draft, ask questions about your intentions, and make suggestions for revision. The tutors will help you look at your paper critically and give you feedback and constructive suggestions. You will then be able to analyze your writing and make appropriate choices. We will schedule appointments with you face-to-face to review papers you have written for a class, or you may email your papers to the Center for tutoring.
