Online Submissions

We offer online help on  a wide range of projects:  academic essays, research papers, group papers, book/art/drama reviews, research proposals, resumes and cover letters, grad school application essays, internship reports, submissions for publication, book manuscripts, treatises, theses, and dissertations.

Students, staff, and faculty from all academic disciplines may  submit documents for review and commentary from our consultants. We require that you use your TCU email account to submit documents as Microsoft Word or pdf files attached to an email to our central account: .

Our Rule of Threes

Because we encourage revision, personal growth, and independence in writers,

  • Clients may book up to 3 appointments per week.
  • Writing consultants will review up to 3 online submissions per week, 1 submission per day.
  • Writing consultants will review a single document up to 3 times.
  • Clients may work with the same consultant up to 3 times consecutively, then we recommend they work with different consultants.
  • Writing consultants will work with alums who are new graduates up to 3 times within the first 3 months of graduation, specifically on graduate school application essays

Guidelines for Submission

  • We read and comment on OWLs Mondays through Fridays from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
  • We respond to your requests in the order in which we receive them, usually within 2 business days.
  • Please attach only one document for review with each online submission.
  • Sending duplicate or multiple submissions does not change a document’s position or priority  in the queue of papers we receive daily.
  • Consultants will review 1 submission per student per day, up to 3 submissions per week.
  • We are unable to review  documents saved on any platform requiring a log-in, such as:
    • Sharepoint
    • OneDrive
    • GoogleDocs.

Are You Ready to Submit?

Save your document to your desktop as a Microsoft Word document or a pdf file.

Send your document as an attachment from your TCU email to ( and provide the following information:

  • Your Name (and group member names, if submission is group-authored):
  • Your TCU ID:
  • Your Major:
  • Your Classification (First Year, Sophomore, Junior, Senior, Graduate, Faculty, Staff, or Alum):
  • Your Course or Purpose:
  • Is it your first, second, or third draft?
  • What would you like us to help you with?

Neglecting to include the necessary information, including group member names, may delay our ability to review your draft in a timely manner, which is within 2 business days.

Advance Planning is Key

As semesters unfold and due dates arrive, we get very busy, especially past mid-term. You will need to plan ahead. Be mindful that the cutoff date for online submissions is 5 p.m. on the last day of classes. The Center provides only a limited number of in-person or Zoom appointments during Study Days and finals week, as our consultants are either conducting or taking finals.

As a friendly reminder, we do not assist students at any level with take-home essay exams without the expressed written consent of the professor.
