Undergraduate, Masters, and Doctoral Writing Support

Online Writing Center Specialists and Tutors offer customized, detailed feedback on course assignments, discussion posts, proposal and dissertation chapter drafts, and just about any other writing you do for TCSPP. We focus on both higher-order (organization, flow, logic, tone) and lower-order (grammar, mechanics, APA) concerns in our reviews, and you have the opportunity to request that we prioritize our feedback to fit your needs. 

BA Academic Success Coaching

The BA Psychology Academic Success Coach is now offering scheduled appointments via the Online Writing Center appointment system. BA students can schedule sessions for APA, writing, time management, and academic success strategies. 


  • Schedule your appointment at least 3 days prior to your assignment due date. We will provide feedback within 48 hours of your scheduled appointment, and you want to allow at least 1 day to incorporate our feedback, revise, and ask questions as needed.

  • Make sure you are familiar with MS Word track changes and comments features and how to accept and reject changes​

  • Inform your tutor if you need accommodations​​, particularly related to any multimedia feedback we might provide (closed captioning, etc.).

  • Complete your Appointment Form in full, providing as much detail as possible about your assignment and the type of help you are seeking.

  • Email your APA and writing-related questions to onlinewritingcenter@thechicagoschool.edu​​, and we'll reply with a detailed response within 24 hours!


You will need to schedule an app​ointme​nt​ ​with the OCWC for a review of a paper, including discussion posts, course assignments, proposal chapters, and dissertation chapters.​




  • You must attach a paper to your appointment by 6:00 a.m. central time the day of your appointment or the appointment will be marked a no-show. Three no-shows will result in loss of services.
