Graduate Writing Services

Improve Your Writing

As a graduate student, you can make an appointment to bring in a paper, thesis, dissertation — a writing project in any discipline—and get immediate feedback for improving your work. Although we will not edit your paper, we can help you identify areas for improvement and assist with the overall writing process. Our service is the only all-inclusive graduate writing assistance available on campus.

You may make two 50-minute appointments per week but only one appointment at a time and only one appointment per day. You may schedule an appointment for a piece of writing that is at least 2 pages in length when conventionally formatted (double-spaced, with one inch margins, and 11- or 12-point font). Personal statements are exempt from this policy.

Our services do not provide consultations for resumes and cover letters.
