What is paper review?

You can submit any of your written coursework to the Writing Center to get feedback within 24 hours. This service is free to all students attending Ashford University or University of the Rockies.

What can I submit for review?

You can submit any written coursework. This includes papers, outlines, and discussion posts. If you are a doctoral student, you can also submit your Letter of Intent (LOI) and your dissertation. If you would like a dissertation review, please submit a single chapter at a time.

Will the Writing Center edit my paper?

You will receive detailed feedback, examples, and links to other helpful resources, but the Writing Center will not directly edit your work. Instead, a writing consultant will provide feedback related to idea development, APA style, thesis statements, and many other writing-related errors. Feedback will include a Revision Letter, which is a prioritized list of areas of concern, as well as margin comments.
