Online Writing Support

Writing Center Submissions – Students may submit essays and receive feedback from a Studio consultant or from a Smarthinking tutor, usually within 24 hours. Students retrieve their returned essays from their Archives within their ST account. At the same time, ST also emails students to alert them that feedback on their writing is available.

Drop-In Tutoring – Students can work live with a Smarthinking tutor.

Scheduled Tutoring – Students also may make appointments to meet with a tutor; appointments must be made 24 hours in advance.

Study Aids –ST provides access to 1,500 mathematics tutorials, other math resources, an accounting study guide, a Writer’s Handbook, and more.

Submitting your writing to the Smarthinking Essay Center

Log into Blackboard to access Smarthinking

For live writing help, choose “Work with a Tutor or Career Coach.”
To submit your writing for written feedback, choose “Submit My Writing.”


If you are choosing to submit your essay for written feedback, you have several options. You can submit your essay for a Smarthinking tutor to review it. You can also submit your essay for a Studio consultant to review it. Submitting to Smarthinking will use some of your 180 minutes of Smarthinking support available per semester. Submitting to the Studio will not use any of your minutes.
