Writing Help

Our Purpose

The purpose of the Student Learning Assistance Center (SLAC) is to help students become better, more self-sufficient writers. At SLAC, writing tutors are trained to work with all students, no matter what their stage in the writing process or their status in the university. Writing tutors cannot, however, assist students on any sort of exit examination or thesis from any program in the university.


Writing Assistance Policy


Submit a Paper to the OWL

  • If you e-mail your paper to the SLAC OWL, a writing tutor will read it and e-mail some comments to help you improve your paper. You can expect a response in 48 hours, excluding weekends and school breaks. Priority is given to papers from within Texas State University-San Marcos.
  • (If you are an instructor planning to assign a class to use the OWL, please contact TL02@txstate.edu or call 245-2515 BEFOREHAND.)
