Distance students have access to the University's Writing Center.
Distance students can schedule an online appointment, upload their paper or assignment, and then meet virtually with a trained writing tutor to discuss any questions and concerns the student may have about their writing.
Based on Kate L. Turabian’s A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations (7th Edition) and The Chicago Manual of Style (16th Edition), this manual was adopted in the fall of 2012 by the Department of Christian Ministries and the Department of Theology. This Fourth Edition of the Manual was prepared by Dr. Terry L. Cross, Dean of the School of Religion and Professor of Systematic Theology.
A print copy of The SOR Manual of Style for Papers is available at the library's reference desk for those students who prefer to view the manual in print format.
