Usage policies

Eligible undergraduates may access AWC tutoring services through their eCollege classroom links.

  1. Live Chat:  for quick questions about writing (15 minutes or less), hours are available daily (to be announced).  This is first come, first serve.  Students may sign on for more than one appointment only if no one is waiting to be helped.
  2. Real-time paper review with a writing consultant: (COMING SOON- 30 minute appointments; must be scheduled).  Tutors review up to 4 pages of a student’s paper (but can also help with brainstorming and writer’s block).
  3. Email paper review: Students access a submission form by clicking on the Email Submission box.  Students upload their paper and will receive comments by a tutor within 48 hours, Monday - Friday.

Note: The Ashford Writing Center tutoring services are closed on holidays. Please plan ahead according to Ashford University holiday break schedule.

*Due to heavy volume, we must limit these resources to one service per week.

*The Ashford Writing Center is closed on all observed holidays. Please plan accordingly for this delay when submitting papers for review or attempting to contact the AWC on holidays.
