It’s no secret
that having strong writing skills
will give you an edge
in today’s competitive job market.
It’s no secret that writing isn’t
just for “writers.”
You can learn to write well, and the quality of your writing can impact your career.
While you are taking steps toward
your degree, why not take advantage
of the Writing Center?
It’s free. It’s easy. It’s friendly and there when you need it.
Commas giving you fits?
Our live tutors are available 15 hours each week:
Sunday, Monday and Tuesday
6:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. ET
(Please note we are closed all other days, including official University holidays).
Click on "Speak with a Writing Center Tutor“ link and "Join Live Tutorial“ will appear. This is where you can interact with a friendly, capable tutor.
* Our tutors are 100% genuine Kaplan University professors. That means they are fully experienced,
completely trained, and ready to help you with any area and any stage of writing.
Can’t squeeze a tutor
into your busy schedule?
You can easily submit a question for a tutor. With our 24/7 “Q & A Center,” you can type out any writing question you have directly on the screen and leave it with us. This is especially helpful when you cannot make it during “live tutor” hours, or have a rather complicated question.
For example, let’s say you have an unusual source you want to cite or reference in a paper, and none of your APA tip sheets or websites show a good example. Post your question in the “Q&A Center” and we will get back with you in approximately 24 hours.
It’s 3 in the morning.
You need to know what?
We probably have the answer.
In the Writing Center’s Reference Library, we have a wide variety of tips on common writing issues under these categories:Writing Types and Tools Writing Process Research, Citation, and Plagiarism, Writing MechanicsThese student friendly, professor approved PDF documents can be saved to your computer and easily printed.
The “Research, Citation, and Plagiarism” section is particularly helpful. If you are having trouble with APA (formatting, in-text citations, creating a reference page), this section can help, and “APA 101” is a great place to start.
Paper due next week?
We can help.
When you “Submit a Paper for Feedback,” one of our tutors will review it and give you some valuable suggestions to help you improve your writing. This is especially useful during the draft stage of the
writing process. This is not a paper correction service—instead, our tutors will return your paper (with clear, useful
suggestions) within 48-72 hours. Nice!
How do you do it? Easy. Attach your paper and the official KUWC Paper Submission Form to an email message from your Kaplan account and send it to: [email protected]
In KU Campus, click on the “Mail” link in the upper-right corner of the page, then click on “Compose” and “Add Attachment.”
