Distance Learners (DL)


Currently, because both coaches and students are working remotely, every student is a DL student. The GWC is dedicated to providing all students the same level of high-quality service, whether near to the NPS campus in Monterey or learning from many miles away.

Our writing coaches support distance learners throughout their academic programs using the same coaching process offered to resident students.

DL students work on their papers and theses with writing coaches via phone, Zoom, MS Teams, or email. Schedule a live or asynchronous appointment in WCOnline.

Your coach's email will be in the appointment form; email your draft paper and assignment prompt, or a thesis chapter, to your coach in advance for review. Your coach will mark up your document and email it back to you. Both Zoom and MS Teams give the option of screen sharing and document sharing in real time.

Email writingcenter@nps.edu or your coach for more information. For additional guidance, see the Distance Learners' Handbook.
