Writing Services for Online Students

The Writing Center is where Ball State students, including online and distance education students, can get support for their writing projects and presentations.

If you want individualized feedback for your written assignment, consider making an appointment for a free one-to-one online tutoring session (video for how to use online tutoring). The appointments are synchronous with text chat or video/audio chat at the discretion of the student.

If you have a simple question, you’ll get a quick answer. Just e-mail the Writing Center during regular hours. No appointment required.

During off-hours, you might find the answers you need in the Writing Center online writing resources.
