Online Writing Lab (OWL)



Welcome to the Online Writing Lab!   

Due to a high number of submissions, the wait time for an OWL response has been extended to five business days. We apologize for the inconvenience and encourage you to make an appointment with us in person or stop by for drop-in hours. We hope to be back to normal soon!  

The Online Writing Lab (OWL) allows students to utilize our services without having to be on campus! When you submit your work to the OWL, you will receive written feedback via email from one of our Writing Assistants within 48-72 hours.

We are currently testing a new system for the OWL, which allows us to give feedback using Google Docs. All you need is a student email address. 

We are excited about this new format, but it is still under construction! Thank you for your patience as we test this new system.  

To submit your work to the OWL, please click here and complete the Google Form. At the end of the Form, you will be asked to upload your assignment as a .doc or .docx file. Please note that in order to access this form, you must be logged in to your student email account and logged out of any attached personal Gmail accounts. 

Please email Chessie Alberti at or call (541) 917-4708 if you have any difficulties with the new system or if you would like to make suggestions for how we can improve.
