Online Consultation


Usually, you will receive a response from a writing tutor in your UNCW e-mail account within 2-3 business days (excluding weekends & holidays). However, during busy times of the semester (mid-term, end of the semester) it can take a week or longer to get a response.

* Your paper will be returned as a MS Word document. *
Writing tutors are currently using MS Word 2010.

* We strongly recommend that you submit your draft at least a week before it is due!!*

In order to get an online response you must be a UNCW student.

  • Peer writing tutors responding to drafts online will only respond to "global" revision concerns (i.e. focus, development, organization, audience, etc).
    If you want assistance with "local" revision concerns (how to edit, MLA or APA citation, etc), you need to set an appointment to meet with a peer writing tutor.
  • Papers that are 10 pages or longer cannot be submitted for online response. For lengthy papers, students must set an appointment to meet with a peer writing tutor.
  • You should receive your response within 2-3 business days, but there are times during the semester when it may take longer to receive an e-response (mid-term, exam week, etc). If we cannot get a response to you within 3 business days or before the due date, you will be notified.
