Online Graduate Writing Support

Online graduate writing support is available for graduate students who are seeking assistance with writing assignments in any 500, 600, or 700 course, by appointment only. Rather than correct your paper for you, graduate writing consultants will review your document and dialogue with you to help you identify any common errors and areas for revision.


Online tutoring is open Sundays through Thursdays 3 p.m. - 10 p.m., Arizona time. The last day of the regular schedule will be Thursday, April 25. Online tutoring will be open on Monday, April 29 through Wednesday, May 1 from 6p.m. – 10p.m., Arizona time.
