Undergraduate Writing Assistance

What is it?

  • Writing specialists will offer help at any stage of the writing process and answer questions about formatting in APA, MLA, and Chicago Style.
  • Specialists DO NOT proofread papers but model correct writing practices.
  • Comments are restricted to structure, coherence, grammar, punctuation, and usage.  Writing specialists do not provide feedback concerning subject content.
  • The specialist will use the scheduled time to discuss the paper with the student.


  • Students make appointments by using Genbook or by calling (608) 796-3190.
  • Book a half hour appointment for papers 4 pages or less; book two half hour appointments for papers exceeding 4 pages.  Limit appointments to one hour/day.
  • When scheduling an appointment, choose Undergraduate Writing and a specific specialist. If you choose "no preference" the first available sessions will be visible.
  • Appointments should be made several days in advance.  At certain times of the semester, appointments may be limited or unavailable due to high demand.
  • After implementing the specialist’s comments, students may schedule subsequent appointments.

For additional information, access Frequently Asked Questions. Specific questions may be emailed to one of the writing specialists: Christy Kabat, cjkabat@viterbo.edu or Andy Moore, ajmoore@viterbo.edu.

For Viterbo's graduate students, assistance is available primarily online. For more details, visit the Graduate Writing Assistance web page.
