Graduate Academic Support

Graduate Academic Support

UASP's graduate academic support is provided online live via Zoom in Arizona time.  The support is available to currently enrolled ASU graduate students and offers a dynamic, supportive learning environment and programs across graduate certificates and graduate degree programs.    

Online graduate writing tutoring is available through Zoom during the fall, spring, and summer semesters. 

Online graduate writing tutoring allows students to work with a peer tutor to:

  • Develop or discuss an outline of ideas before beginning to write.
  • Discuss ways to integrate evidence and sources.
  • Consider ways to organize and revise ideas.
  • Review guidelines for proper citations of sources.
  • Review grammar and sentence style options.

ASU Writing Centers offer a dynamic, supportive learning environment for graduate students who are currently enrolled in 500, 600, or 700-level courses. Tutors from a wide range of degree programs can meet online with currently enrolled ASU graduate students to discuss their writing at any stage of the writing process. Online graduate writing tutoring is available live via Zoom for graduate students.

Writing Groups

Are you looking for peer assistance with your writing? The ASU Graduate Writing Center can assist you in organizing a writing group that can offer you a way to stay motivated, meet due dates and receive meaningful feedback on your writing.

To be matched with a writing group, we recommend that you identify two or more fellow graduate students (in your same degree program or even in another degree program) with whom you would like to start a writing group. Once you know of colleagues who are also interested in starting a writing group, you can contact the ASU Graduate Writing Center at (480) 965-9072.  We will then work with you and your colleagues to schedule a workshop where you will learn about the writing group process and how to create a preliminary schedule to get started.
