Online Consulting


9am – 10pm Monday through Thursday
9am – 2pm Friday

As of Fall 2016, The Writing Center at MSU is excited to announce a change in online consulting services. Introducing Google Docs, a cloud-based platform that requires no download or account creation as you are already a Gmail user with your MSU email—just click apps on your Google page and you’re there. Google Docs allows you and your consultant to view your work together in real-time, talk about it via chat, and edit it directly through comments. If you prefer, Google Docs also facilitates video chat through Google Hangouts which can be accessed via computer or device camera, microphone, or phone.

After you make an appointment, you’ll receive instructions in a confirmation email. Once you’re logged in, share your document with and your consultant will meet you there!


Upload your paper to Google Docs
Use Google Chrome preferably (especially if you plan to use Google Chat or Hangout function)
