UWC for Graduate Students
During the semester, writing support is available to current EMU graduate students and instructors, as well as recent alumni of graduate-level programs. To request writing support, click the “Request writing support” link on the right. All writers are asked to limit their requests to once per week.
You must be logged into only your EMU email to request support. If you get an error, sign out of any other email accounts and try again.
UWCGS is open May 9 – August 15 for the summer semester.
Closed dates: May 30, July 4
Three types of support are available:
- Real-Time, Virtual Consultations - One-hour appointments are available in Zoom or Google Meet. Requests for appointments must be made at least 24 hours in advance, and appointments occur Monday – Friday. Consultants do not read documents before appointments; documents can be shared during the appointment.
- Asynchronous/Written Feedback - A writing consultant reviews and comments on an uploaded document. Documents of any length can be submitted, but turnaround time depends on the number of double-spaced pages to be reviewed. Generally, it takes 2 days for each 10 pages submitted. Submissions received after 6:00 pm are considered to be received the next day, and submissions received Friday, Saturday, or Sunday have one additional day added.
- In-Person, On-Campus Consultations – One-hour appointments must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance, and appointments occur Monday – Friday. The consultant does not read documents before appointments; documents can be shared during the appointment. COVID-safety protocols must be followed.
