Submission Timing

One of the most important parts of receiving online tutor feedback is timing.  
Remember, writing tutors require time to review an essay and write feedback. Do not wait too long to submit your essay; if you do, you may not receive feedback before the deadline or you may not have time to make the changes the tutor suggests.

Tutors make every effort to return feedback within 48 hours of submission. However, depending on volume and length of submissions, return times may take up to 72 hours.  Your tutor will email your feedback to your HAWKmail account as an attachment.  You will need to download the attachment to view the tutor's comments in the margins of your paper.  

As you prepare your essay for submission, please adhere to the following guidelines.

  • All documents must be submitted in .doc or .docx format.
  • Attach assignment sheet. 
  • The tutor’s primary focus will be on organization, clarity, and content.
