CAS gives students feedback to empower them to grow into stronger, more confident writers over time. CAS can assist you in interpreting assignments, organizing and planning your writing process, and refining and improving your grammar and writing skills. The aim of consultants is not to "error-proof" papers, but to assist students in recognizing strengths and weaknesses of their writing. By revising in light of this knowledge, students will better understand the writing process and have strategies to improve patterns of error in their writing. We expect that the learning that happens in one appointment will transfer to students’ next paper. Gradually, students will be able to transform their writing on their own as capable "re-writers."


All Writing Support Services have moved on-line and all in-person meetings have been temporarily suspended. Our on-line appointments are held using our WCOnline’s built-in chatroom. For students needing feedback on papers, please visit https://sg.mywconline.com/, select writing consultation, then a person and time that works for you. Appointments will be available Monday-Friday between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm with some occasional evenings.  If you need help or have additional questions, the best way to reach us is via email at sg-cas@umd.edu.
