Writing Expectations

The purpose
of this section is to help you understand some of the academic writing
expectations at GCU and in higher education. Included is a comprehensive list
of writing expectations or guidelines you will want to adhere to during your
academic career as well as ways to overcome common errors in college-level
writing. After reviewing the Developing Academic Skills Guide and the Academic
Writing Guidelines Resource located under Resources and the accompanying links,
complete the sections below. In addition to this, you are welcome to use
external resources such as the GCU Library, Google Scholar, or similar search
engines to understand these guidelines and common errors more fully.


Place the
correct guideline (the capital letters), next to the correct description of
that guideline.


A Contractions F 1st Lines of Paragraphs indent
0.5” K Spell

B Writing in 3rd person G Conciseness L Margins

C Times New Roman 12pt Font H Run-on Sentences M Text/Slang language

D Double Space I Fragmented Sentences N Capitalization

E Align Left J Idioms O Essay Formatting


Microsoft Word has a sophisticated
“checker” to identify most spelling, grammar, & consistency
errors. Remove all before submission.

An extra line between sentences
accomplished by using the “Line and Paragraphing Spacing” option in Microsoft
Word & selecting 2.0 Spacing

The TAB key often makes a
perfect 0.5-inch indentation by default.

All four sides of each page in
your document must default to 1.0” for the top, bottom, left, and right sides.

Separates creative writing from
formal academic writing including APA, MLA, & GCU Style. Strict adherence
is required.

Clichés slang or figurative
language should be avoided. Instead, write out or use the definition instead of
the cliché.

Avoid the shortened forms of one
or two words combined. Spell out both words.

Be sure to use this
appropriately for the first word in every sentence, proper nouns, and

LOL is an example of a term that
should not be used in academic writing.

Most common standardized
lettering and size in college level writing.

Microsoft Word will underline
these errors with a blue line. Rewrite the sentence until the blue line

Paragraphs should be aligned to
the left at the zero or null point on the Microsoft Word ruler.

Avoid extraordinarily long
sentences. The word “and” can often be a place to split up a Run-on.

Avoid wordiness by deleting
needless words and using Microsoft Word thesaurus for word ideas, synonyms, and

One would, A person could, They
should, She, He, It are examples of writing in this point of view
