The UWC is a free academic support service open 24 hours Monday-Saturday. The UWC does not accept submissions on Sunday.
The UWC offers:
  • Document review (papers, case studies, main discussion posts)

  • English-as-a-second language writing assistance

  • Guideline compliance checks for final dissertations

  • Review of personal statements for residency applications

  • Tutorial on the Proper Use of Sources 
The UWC is staffed with professional editors, writers, and educators who have experience in health-care writing and editing, or TOEFL/ESL. 

To submit a document for review, send an email and attachment to writingcenter@atsu.edu 

  • Documents less than 20 pages are returned in 24 hours; 20-49 pages in 48 hours; over 50 pages within 72 hours. Compliance checks for dissertations require at least 7 business days. 

  • Documents are reviewed only once. Exception:  Assignments that "build" over a term or program (e.g. tDPT capstones, ARPs)

  • Submissions are reviewed on a first come/first served basis.

  • Documents must be submitted as Microsoft Word documents with a title page identifying the student and the course. Students creating PowerPoints should submit the text and references as a MS Word file. Layout and design should be done AFTER you have finalized your copy.

  • Students requesting ESL assistance should type ATTN:ESL in the subject line of email submissions.

If you have questions about the UWC policies or wish to discuss your particular situation, please call Dr. Ade Anast, Director, University Writing Center at 641.455.8832 anytime 9 am - 9 pm CST.
