What is the paper review drop box service?

You can submit any of your written coursework to get feedback and suggestions for revision. A writing tutor will spend 45 minutes addressing your specific concerns and suggesting improvements. Because of the time limit, the number of pages the tutor will be able to review is limited.

When can I submit a paper for review?

You can submit a draft of your paper at any time–day, night, or weekend. However, the tutors review papers only during their regularly scheduled hours. Allow two business days (48 hours) for your paper to be reviewed. If you submit a paper on a Friday night, you will most likely not receive a response until Wednesday morning of the next week. The tutors are unavailable on weekends, at night, and during holidays, so please plan ahead!

What can I submit for review?

You can submit any work you have written for your courses. This includes essays, outlines, or discussion posts.

Will the tutor edit my work?

You will receive feedback to help you to revise and edit, but the tutor will not directly edit your work. The tutor’s goal is identify error patterns and offer you strategies for improvement and correction.

Will I receive a conference note (a record of the session) if I submit my paper to the drop box?

No. However, you may schedule a follow-up appointment with a tutor. After your face-to-face appointment (Zoom or in-person), your tutor will provide a conference note.
