Grammarly Premium free for all ISU students and faculty

Grammarly logo

Grammarly is a digital writing-support tool that provides powerful grammar, spelling, and plagiarism checking based on natural language processing and machine-learning technologies. It integrates conveniently into many of the places where Iowa State students and faculty are doing their writing today, such as web browsers (so it can be used in CyMail and Canvas), Google Docs, office productivity software, and mobile devices. 

All ISU students and faculty have free access to the premium version of Grammarly through a pilot program funded by CASTLE and supported by the Department of English
