Online Submissions

The Writing Centre is pleased to offer an online service during the suspension of on-campus classes.

How does it work?

  • Students submit their documents for feedback and can ask writing-related questions. 
  • Tutors provide feedback on student assignments and making suggestions on ways to improve student writing.
  • Please be aware, though, that tutors DO NOT edit student work; instead, tutors help students become better writers and self-editors.


  • Our tutors are available to work on submissions Monday to Friday from 9 am to 5 pm.  However, students can still submit their documents on the weekend.
  • Students should expect a minimum 48-hour delay (2 business days) until a tutor is available.

Please keep in mind:

  • Please do not request multiple sessions at the same time. We can only assign one request at a time.
  • We encourage you to apply any feedback you receive during your session to future papers. 
  • Please send all attachments as .doc or .docx files.
  • You must give specific information on what you would like the tutor to check.
  • Note: If you submit a group paper, all of the authors must also send us an email granting us permission to work on the paper. Send emails to

Please note that the Writing Centre will close on Friday, April 23 and will re-open on

Monday, May 10, 2021.
