Grammarly

Access instructions

  • Go to Grammarly.com in the Chrome browser
  • Select the "Get Grammarly: It's Free" button.
  • Add the Chrome Extension.
  • Once this is downloaded, you will be asked to create a free account.  Use any email address--you do not need to use your NetID.

  • Finally, you will be taken to a screen where you can upload your document for review by the Grammarly program.
    • Any formatting you've done will be lost, so wait until after you've run your paper through Grammarly to format your paper.
    • You also have the option to download an MS Office plugin on this page, so you can check your writing in MS Word.
    • Grammarly is a computer program, not a human reviewer.
