As part of the Academic Success Centre our goal is to empower students to learn more effectively and efficiently, to earn higher grades, become more independent learners and persist throughout their studies and beyond. The Writing Centre is not an editing service, but rather works to help students become stronger and more confident writers.

You can submit a paper for feedback. Our writing technologists will review up to 30% of your paper and provide feedback within 3 business days. Tell us your name, student number, email, and program. You can also drop-in to one of our remote drop-in sessions or book an appointment. During Summer 2021, book an appointment by contacting Academic Success.
If our form isn't working for you, email us at email@example.com with the following required information.
You can attach the assignment instructions for clarification and tell us what you would like feedback on.
We will return your paper with our feedback comments no later than 3 business days after you submit your paper. For example, if you submit the paper on a Monday, you'll get the paper back no later than Thursday. However, if you submit a paper on a Friday, you will receive feedback no later than Wednesday of the following week.
One of our writing centre technologists looks at your paper and concentrates on 30% (or 1/3) of your paper. If you've identified where you need feedback, e.g. APA formatting, they will focus on what you want. All feedback will be in the form of comments within your document.
Within MSWord, make sure you are in the "Review" ribbon. You may need to select "Show Comments" or make sure that "All Markup" is selected. Select each comment and "Delete" it. What you need to do depends on if you are using a desktop or web version of MSWord.
Drop-ins return for Fall 2021. Here is our drop-in schedule. Make sure you select the drop-in event to get the WebEx link. There may be more than 1 student receiving help at the same time. The writing centre technologist will admit you from the lobby.
Contact Academic Success for an appointment. See our schedule for available times. We also offer drop-in help or you can submit a paper by email for feedback. Drop-ins and our appointment calendar return for Fall 2021.
Appointments are 20-30 minutes long. You may only have 1 appointment per week to accommodate other students' needs.
