Students commonly use Microsoft (MS) Word to write academic papers. MS Word is also the program that Walden University prefers students to use for written assignments and the program that instructors commonly use to provide feedback to students. As such, students will need to learn how to use various functions in MS Word to properly format papers in APA and to make editing easier. The Walden University Academic Skills Center offers step-by-step instructions for commonly used functions and tools in MS Word.
The Academic Skills Center's tutoring team is here to help if you can't find what you are looking for or need additional support. Current Walden students, you can make an appointment for free, online tutoring help OR e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your question. We will respond within 24-hours.
