Option 2: Writing Center Email Paper Review

The purpose of a paper review is to assist students with basic grammar, thesis statement development, organization, and critical thinking. Tutors will not proofreader/edit papers and will not change the voice or tone of the studentís paper. The central role of the tutor is to offer suggestions and to assist with brainstorming, to encourage independent learning and to develop the studentís writing style and critical thinking skills.

Same day paper review is not available. Please allow 48 hours (2 days) from the time you submit your paper. The CFWC email is checked Monday Ė Friday from 8:00am - 5:00pm. Any submissions sent after 5:00pm will not be seen until the following business day and the time for the submission will be entered the next day as 8:00am.

CFWC can only accept 40 papers for a 48-hour review period. When the submission limit is reached; this service will be turned off until all the papers have been reviewed.

IMPORTANT: If you receive an Out of Office email message, when you try to submit your paper, this means that your submission was not received.

You will need to resubmit your paper again. Once all the papers in the queue have been reviewed, the CFWC service will be restarted again until it reaches the 40 paper limit.

Please adhere to following instructions for submitting a paper via the Writing Centerís online service.
