Jandrisevits Learning Center (JLC) Online Writing Lab

In this short video, you will learn how to upload a paper to the Jandrisevits Learning Center Online Writing Lab.

Do you have a research paper draft completed, but you're not sure if it is ready to be submitted to your instructor? Instead of having a friend or parent review your paper for you, have a writing professional take a look at it.

The JLC has an Online Writing Lab, also called OWL, to assist you with your work whether you are an on-campus or online student. You can access the JLC’s OWL from the Sacred Heart University homepage by typing in “online writing lab” in the search box and hitting enter.
