BPCC Learning Center English Writing Support Services Guidelines for Online Submissions:

  • Major changes to a paper should always be approved by an instructor prior to the submission of the final draft.
  • No drafts will be reviewed without the assignment description and instructions.
  • Tutors will use current MLA/APA citation references when assisting students with citations, but will not be responsible for the final outcome of the Works Cited page.
  • While tutors make every effort to ensure that students have a successful outcome, they cannot guarantee that every error has been pointed out and/or will be corrected by the student. Tutors will point out patterns of errors (for example: comma splices); it is the student’s responsibility to use that information to find and correct all of the errors in the paper. Supplementary materials can be accessed via TLC’s Blackboard page.
  • Drafts with an excessive amount of errors may require more than one submission for all of the patterns to be addressed.
  • In order to receive the most effective feedback, students should revise drafts that have been previously reviewed by a WSS tutor and/or instructor prior to resubmitting.
  • For an online draft, only patterns of errors in grammar and punctuation will be pointed out. For assistance with organization and rhetorical concerns, students must have a face-to-face consultation with a tutor at the TLC.
  • If a checklist is provided by an instructor, students should attach it in the email. If a checklist is not provided, the TLC checklist will be used.
  • A tutor’s comments and feedback on a rough draft are secondary to the instructor’s feedback and will not substitute for a rough draft check with the instructor that the student has missed.
  • Papers/drafts should be sent as a Word attachment and not copied and pasted into the body of the email.
