Session Expectations

GWC supports any actively enrolled NC State graduate student and is appointment only.

  • GWC is a peer-to peer service, meaning you will work with a trained graduate student. Consultants are successful students, but not a teacher or expert. Though they are a good resource, the consultant will not do the student’s work and is not responsible for the student’s assignment or course grade.
  • The ASC continually strives to improve our writing services through direct supervision, including session observations of our consultants. In one such session observation, consultants may request to record a session to view their own performance. Please note that these recordings are seen only by the consultant and their direct supervisor. The sole purpose of both recording a session and session observations is to improve the consultant’s performance and skills.

Our writing consultants can assist students with:

  • any stage of the writing process (overcoming writer’s block, brainstorming and organizing ideas, reading through a draft, and revising)
  • a wide range of materials (course assignments, personal statements for scholarships or applications, job application materials, dissertations, grant proposals, journal articles, and more)
  • group papers or projects (all group members must be present)

We are unable to provide:

  • Electronic Theses and Dissertation (ETD) support
  • Microsoft Office, Google Suite, or any other technology support
  • Editing or proofreading services

Additional expectations for Zoom sessions:

  • Ensure you’re logged in via your NC State account
  • Have your camera on for the duration of the appointment
  • Make sure you can screen share your materials
