The Graduate Student Success Center is a free resource for Boise State graduate students. Offering assistance in every aspect of the graduate school journey, the success center features writing services as one of the many resources available. Students have the option to choose from either in-person or online writing consultations.

For new or returning Boise State graduate students, our coaches offer five writing tips:

  1. Your reference guide is pertinent in receiving full credit. 
  2. Break down your writing assignments into manageable steps. 
  3. Revision and editing are fundamental in creating a final draft. 
  4. Utilize a second pair of eyes and be open to constructive criticism. 
  5. Before submission revisit rubric and other assignment resources.
