Graduate Online Writing Lab (GrOWL)
The Graduate Online Writing Lab is an online support service available to graduate and professional students seeking feedback on their writing and research projects. Students can submit their written work, online 24/7, for review by one of our trained GRC consultants.
- Consultants will only review up to 5,000 words
- Submissions must include specifics on the type of feedback you are seeking (i.e., review for clarity and argument)
- Papers will be read, reviewed, and returned with comments within 72 hours (3 business days)
In order to best support you and provide a review that will be helpful, use the comments section of the submission form to specifically address the feedback you need. The GRC consultants do not copy edit papers (check for spelling, grammar, and punctuation); they provide feedback on content, argument, organization, and structure.
For assistance with copy-editing or line-by-line editing, please contact an Off-Campus Editor.

Our consultants can provide limited style manual assistance, such as APA and Chicago. For help with further style formatting, please visit the Purdue Online Writing Lab.
Our GrOWL services are closed for the Summer semester. They will reopen at the start of the Fall semester. If you require support, please email us directly as we have limited availability during this time.
