Whether on the job or in a classroom, writing skills are essential. Take advantage of the Writing Lab consultants and the proofreading provided by Grammarly.
Giving credit by citing information sources protects a writer from plagiarism. The presence of citations informs readers where additional information can be found and lends credibility to your writing. In this course, you will create citations following APA 7 style.
Instructions for formatting your APA paper and creating citations are in the documents linked below. Please note that the 7th edition of APA was released in October 2019. Be sure you are consulting an updated source for correct information on APA 7.
1. Automatic Invitation.
Currently enrolled UP students will receive an automatic Invitation use Grammarly at the beginning of each semester. Invitations will be sent directly to your student email accounts. No more access codes or account requests are required. You must use your Lone Star College student email address i.e. [myLoneStar username]@my.lonestar.edu after accepting the invitation. Personal email addresses will not work for Premium accounts through Lone Star College-University Park.
2. Late Enrollment, Late Start.
For students who are late enrollments and/or have late start courses, the system will be updated periodically to account for this and send out account invitations throughout the semester. Please email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org from your student email account (including your ID number) if you have not received one.
Academic Coaching will continue to provide support to students through online tutoring. We will be using a platform called Upswing to provide 24/7 academic support for a variety of subjects to all currently-enrolled LSC-University Park students at no cost to you.
Students who want to use this resource should fill out the form to receive an account; all account creation requests will be verified and created within one business day. Please note that this resource is only available to currently enrolled LSC-University Park students at this time.
After your account has been created, we will send a confirmation email to your Lone Star email address with an attached student guide on how to log in and use the platform. Please follow the instructions carefully!
Our current academic coaches will be hosting virtual sessions during their normal shifts through the platform. We ask that students request sessions with LSC employees first, if available, before using Upswing tutors. Students will have unlimited access to LSC-University Park coaches, but will be limited to 2 hours per week with Upswing coaches.
Students can do one-on-one or group sessions with coaches.
