Policies and Fees

AVAILABLE CONSULTATIONS

In-Person consultations are completed in our office or a location of your choosing.  These are suitable for any stage of the writing process, and we recommend them for students who are just beginning a paper, for verbal processors, or for anyone needing tutoring. You can come by during our office hours, and we encourage you to make an appointment.

Online consultations are completed through the Track Changes feature in Microsoft Word. After uploading your paper, consultants review your work for errors, provide guidance to help you improve your writing, and send the reviewed paper back to you. These are suitable for later stages in the writing process, for theses/dissertations and for APA compliance. Click here for an example of a reviewed paper.  

Consultations are also available via phone call or video chat.  

We encourage students to plan for additional time to complete a final draft after receiving their reviewed papers from the Writing Center.

Payment is due within 7 days of the consultation. 


TERMS OF SERVICE

Emails and consultation requests will be responded to during Writing Center office hours (Monday-Thursday, 10 am-7 pm). The Writing Center does not currently hold office hours on weekends. Please be aware of this when submitting a consultation request; requests submitted on weekends will be responded to as soon as possible during office hours.

When calculating the amount due, any preliminary reviews and follow-up discussions are considered time spent in consultation.

Late cancellations, no-shows, and failure to abide by any of these policies may result in additional charges.  Payment not received within 30 days will be automatically charged to your student account. 

Advanced payment is required in order to begin consultations for writers and students outside of Fuller Seminary.

While we do our best to help every student, a consultation request does not guarantee we will have consultant availability.

Fuller Writing Center policies and fees are subject to change at any time. Please contact the Managing Editor if you have any questions.
