Online Submissions

We are pleased to offer the Writing Centre Online Tutoring Service (WCOTS).

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:  If you are having trouble clicking on the button below, please send your document directly to and we will assign it to one of our tutors.  Please make sure to:
