What:

  • Grammarly is a software that is available to Rasmussen students at no additional cost.
  • Grammarly checks for grammar, mechanics, spelling, word usage, and even plagiarism.
  • Grammarly is NOT a replacement for working with your instructor, a writing tutor, or the Brainfuse Writing Lab.
  • There is no limit on the number of papers you can submit to Grammarly. Submit away!

Why:

  • It is a tool that will help you present your best work to your instructor.
  • When you turn in a paper that has already been reviewed by Grammarly, your instructor is then free to really focus on the content, what you have learned, without being distracted by writing errors.
  • Grammarly will help you build your confidence as you work towards becoming a better writer.

When:

24 hours a day / 7 days a week. Grammarly will provide almost instant feedback anytime because it is an automated (computerized) service.
