GWIE | Gradute Writing Institute for Excellence

    [ Tutoring Policies ] 

 Proofreading & Editing

*** We do not proofread, nor do we edit papers ***

Our GWCs are trained to assist student writers in becoming more familiar with their own writing and revision processes so that they can identify and correct their own “errors”; in doing so, GWCs may model various proofreading/editing techniques and/or revision strategies, but it is the student writer’s responsibility to take ownership of his own writing as well as her own writing processes.


*** All services are confidential ***

No personal information about any participant in PEGS GWIE will be released except what is required by university policy or state and/or federal law. 


*** If you miss or cancel a tutoring session without providing PEGS proper advanced notification (i.e., No Same Day Cancellations), it is considered a “No-Show” ***

Please notify us either:

  1. in person

  2. via telephone  

  3. via email


2 “No-Shows” in any 5 day period will result in suspension of services

 Suspension duration is anywhere from one week to an entire semester, at our discretion

2 or more suspensions may result in indefinite revocation of all programs & services

Make-up sessions are not permitted

If you are running late, please contact us as soon as possible:

1. More       than       10       minutes       late       to       a       tutoring        session, and your session is subject to cancellation

2. Three or more late appointment arrivals and you may be subject to suspension of services (again, suspensions may last anywhere from one week to an entire semester, at our discretion)
