Editing

Editing involves detailed, sentence-by-sentence feedback on grammar, spelling, punctuation, word choice, and writing style. *Note that editing does not include specific feedback on formatting.

 

Revision
Revision involves detailed feedback on "big picture" ideas in a written text, such as: introductions, thesis statements, paragraph development, organization & cohesion, transitions, integration of research, analysis, conclusions, and even visual appeal.

 

Payment
You can pay per text as needed (which means multiple payments during the semester). Or you can pay in advance for a specific number of pages (which means less payments during the semester). All payments must be received at least 72 hours (3 full days) before feedback is required for a written text.  You may pay by cash, check, student account, credit card, or debit card. You can do so online or at the physical bookstores on the Charlotte and Hamilton campuses.

On the payment page, the indicated price is the price per page (for double-spaced texts), and students must select the number of pages to be reviewed by increasing the item quantity. For example, if a text is 4 pages long, then the student will enter "4." The system will then calculate the total price for 4 pages once the student checks out in the online store.
