How do I submit an assignment to the Writing Center for review?

Email assignments (in Microsoft Word format) to  CC your professor on the email so they know you’ve submitted it to us.


When should I submit an assignment to the Writing Center?

Many, but not all, AMBS professors will consider assignments submitted to the Writing Center on the due date as “on time” submissions (even if it takes a few days for you to receive and implement feedback).  You should check with each professor and syllabus for specific policies on due dates and submissions to writing services.

If your professor does not count assignments as on time when submitted to writing services on the due date, you should observe the writing services deadlines outlined in this document.

We are happy to review early drafts of assignments before they are due, as well.


How long does it take to receive feedback from the Writing Center?

We aim to return assignments to you within three (3) business days.  Often we can return them more quickly than this.  However, at times with particularly heavy workloads, we may need to take more time than this.

If you have been waiting more than three days for feedback, feel free to reach out to us for a status update.


How will I receive feedback?

Our Writing Services team will review your assignment and make suggestions, revisions, and comments within Microsoft Word.  When finished, your document will be uploaded into Google Drive and shared with you.  You will have to download the assignment to review our suggestions.


How long after I receive feedback do I have to submit the assignment to my professor?

This will vary depending on each professor’s expectations.  Please see your syllabus or speak with your professor.
