The Writing Center will respond to your submission within three business days.

Weekend and holiday submissions will be received on the next business day.

An active account with the Writing Center is required for online tutoring.

Documents must be submitted in MS Word format.

Students may submit one paper a day, up to two papers a week.

Work needs to be submitted well ahead of the due date.
