To schedule an appointment in I-Plan:

  • After you have clicked the link above, log into I-Plan (Pathway students should use the "LDS Access" button to login), and select “Get a Tutor.”
  • Select your course.
  • Then, make sure to select “Online Writing Center.”
  • Once there, schedule an available time that works with your schedule.
  • When you schedule your appointment, make sure you attach your paper as a MS Word document.

Tutors create a supportive and resource-rich environment where writers of all disciplines can enhance their writing skills, consider a reader's response to their writing, discuss revision strategies and writing principles, and increase their confidence and writing ability.

If you are unable to schedule an appointment in I-Plan for any reason, please email owc@byui.edu and let us know.

Please allow up to three business days for a response. If a paper is submitted on Friday, it will most likely not be reviewed until the following Monday, at the soonest.

Note for Students:

Note for Students: Keep in mind that the tutor is not a "fix-it" person who will go through your paper and fix editing errors; instead, tutors offer suggestions and explanations of key writing principles as they relate to your work. Always follow the advice of your instructor and remember that the paper is yours; you must take responsibility for the suggested revisions you choose to incorporate in your final draft.

If you are late for your appointment, you may need to reschedule.

Note for Instructors:

Due to the large numbers of online/pathway students, we ask that instructors do not require or provide special incentives to students for using the service.
