Learning Support Services offers basic grammar evaluation for student essays and other assignments. Students drop off essays and assignments for grammar error evaluation (onsite and online drop).

Essays are NOT corrected for the student, but grammatical errors will be flagged within the document and identified by error type.

Step 1:
Students drop off essays and assignments for grammar error evaluation.
Step 2:
Students should plan for a 48-hour proofing duration after the document has been submitted (Please note: Documents submitted on Friday would have a Tuesday deadline). Evaluation of lesser duration may happen, but is not guaranteed.
