Online Writing Lab (OWL)

Our Online Writing Lab (OWL) is exclusively for students who are not taking on-campus courses. We know even though you're off campus, you may need support to help you succeed. The OWL services offers tutoring suggestions related to grammar, organization and formatting assistance. When you are an ENMU student taking online courses, you can submit a paper to the OWL, using the Online Writing Lab Request form. We try to respond to all requests within 48 hours; the exception to this would be when papers are submitted after hours on Friday or over the weekend. Papers submitted during off hours may not be reviewed until the following Monday.

We are not an editing service and will not copy-edit or rewrite papers for you. Our goal is to empower you to recognize your writing struggles, identify your mistakes, and gain the knowledge and tools to fix them.

ENMU students who need immediate help can access the OWL Writing Resources (opens in new window) portal, which includes comprehensive grammar and style guides.
