Services

We offer many services to help our students with their academic progress. All our services are free of charge to Park University students.

Writing Help

Our writing consultants hold-face-to-face appointments on the Parkville campus to help with papers in all academic subjects. They can help students at all stages of the writing process:  planning, drafting, revision, and editing. The consultant will not “fix” your paper, but will assist you in identifying and correcting problems. Consultants can also help you with determining proper citation of sources and avoiding plagiarism. Schedule your appointment at Parkville Campus Appointments. Students at other campuses and online students can work with a writing consultant via the Online Writing Lab (OWL).
