Graduate Writing Services

Improve Your Writing

Graduate students may make appointments for feedback on their writing projects, such as a course assignment, a personal statement, part of a dissertation. Our one-to-one consultations help identify areas for improvement and assist with the overall writing process. Because our purpose is to help graduate students improve their skills, our services do not include editing or proofreading. We can help you, however, learn strategies for proofreading and editing your own work.

Schedule An Appointment

Graduate students enrolled in the School of Management should contact the Business Communication Center to schedule all writing appointments.

All other graduate students may make two 50-minute appointments per week but schedule only one appointment per day.

To schedule an appointment for a consultation or for more information, please email Thomasina Hickmann [email protected]

Currently, all writing appointments are offered online using Microsoft TEAMS. As a UT Dallas student, you have free access to TEAMS, and, if you haven’t already done so, please install TEAMS on your computer before the date of your appointment. You can find information about installing Teams here.

If you need assistance, please contact the UT Dallas help desk at 972-883-2911.

Once you have made an appointment, you’ll receive an email that provides more information about your online consultation.

Graduate Writing Services does not provide consultations for resumes,cover letters, and CVs. For assistance, graduate students should contact the Career Center.
