Read verified reviews from satisfied customersRead more reviews
"My experience with Ultius has been great. The first and far most impressive aspect is the fact that both the writers AND the support, are first language English speakers, something that is very hard to come by in this industry. The writers are very concerned with exactly what you need and will even engage in a message dialogue should there be any confusion. Thank you! I will be back for my 4th order soon."
"I have used Ultius for almost a year for school paper editing purposes, and at the beginning I was not a very satisfied customer. There was one time when my paper was returned after the deadline. Ultius did end up refunding me my funds but the process was just stressful and overwhelming. They have now added new features that will tell a customer when to expect their order. So many new updates have been added. The only thing I wish they would incorporate is a membership package because their services are bit expensive. I am a perfectionist so it is important to have a professional edit my work before I submit to professors."
"I have tried several other writing and editing services but this is the first one that I have found to be consistent in quality and has not let me down in timeliness. Grammar, syntax and sentence structure tend to be the downfall of the other services. The errors make it obvious that the writers are not native English speakers. In regards, to Ultius, I had seen several negative reviews and it made me hesitant but I tried a few small projects and was confident about giving them a larger assignment. To date, I have no complaints but I also specifically request my writers and maybe that's the difference. Once you find the writers that matches your style and needs; stick with them."
"Excellence in the time of need - I found this website a year ago, when I needed a revision for my work. They did an amazing job, took my paper from mediocre to one of the best. So I kept using their service, its original, so no need to worry about plagiarism at all. Wish I would have known about them from long ago, my papers probably would have been way better."
"Great service! Will use again. I have used this service on many occasions to help me edit and enhance my writing, and have always had great service. Orders are on time, on topic, and have accomplished what I needed. I even get quick responses from customer services when I have questions. Very professional and I will definitely be using them again in the near future."
"Ultius is a very professional company. They are always available for service 24/7. The good thing about them is that they are also always upgrading and updating their systems. You will not be disappointed if you use them. They have qualified writers that will ensure they do things right the first time."
Consumer trust starts with verified reviews
Online shoppers make smarter purchasing decisions after reading reviews. Unfortunately, this leads many companies to post fake reviews. That's why our verified review policy ensures that for every review we show you, there's a link to view where it came from.
Always an owner reply - with a resolution
Mistakes happen, and so do poor reviews. It's up to the business to address the feedback, respond to it appropriately, and offer a resolution. We are proud to say that we respond to each and every one of our online reviews. We also have a proven track record of resolving issues.
A link to the original source with every review
Our commitment to building customer trust means that we show you the name, date, review vendor, and direct link for each review. Just look for the colored vendor label with each review.
With the ability to verify our reviews, you can make a smarter purchasing decision. Plus, it helps manage expectations and keep us honest.Next slide
Reliable resolution process
Whether the review is good, bad, or ugly, we address it. Many initially poor reviews get amended by the customer because we fixed the problem.
If you are unhappy with our custom writing services and leave a poor review, here's what you can expect:
- Timely response from our service manager
- Personal contact via email or phone
- A speedy resolution (if possible)
Our promise to you is that if our writers make a mistake, we'll work hard to get it right for you.

Basic review or advanced editing—we have you covered
Browse our available editing services based on the academic level required, general purpose, or level of scrutiny you need in your work.
Basic document review
A basic document review ensures that a second person (with experience) can make sense of your writing (and the goal behind it) and it’s formatted correctly. Our editors can handle this quickly and clean-up the minor mistakes.
Undergraduate document editing
Basic undergraduate documents like essays, research papers, and the like can be tricky, and our editors can ensure your work follows the provided instructions. Plus, our editors go above and beyond what the writing lab offers.
Advanced post-graduate editing
Graduate school writing work is intense, complex, and mandatory. Our expert editors can help you clean up (or restructure) the whole document or individual chapters. They have been there before and know what’s expected.
Business document editing
The job market is a competitive landscape, and having your important professional documents in order is more important than ever. Our business document editors will ensure you hit the appropriate keywords, stay concise, and stand-out in a crowded playing field.

Benefits of working with an editor
What's in it for you
Working with a professional editor not only gives you a competitive advantage against others, but it also helps you feel better about the entire process—and that's just the beginning.
- Days and hours saved Because an editor has worked on your type of project before, they can help you save valuable time you would otherwise spend fixing your work.
- Editors build your confidence Submit your own work confidently knowing that an expert editor has carefully scrutinized it for clarity and purpose. Plus, you will feel better about doing everything you could have done.
- A commitment to your success Unlike campus writing lab volunteers, our editors are compensated well and therefore care more about your writing success. They will take your project more seriously. Seriously.
- A competitive advantageBecause the world is so competitive, it's important to always have an edge. Using Ultius benefits your future by giving you the competitive advantage of expert writing help at your fingertips.
- A dry run of your workSubmitting your work without peer-review is not only unnecessary, but risky too. Editorial review of your work ensures that you get a dry-run before it counts.
- Peace of mind By using Ultius, you can sleep well knowing that your most important writing projects are being handled by experts who are going to ensure it's a success.
Who we are
Ultius company profile and stat sheet

Since our inception, we have focused on executing our clear mission: conveniently delivering high quality content and offering tremendous client support.
Pricing and payment options
Securely pay your way
Our pricing is determined based on a few simple factors, but the deadline is the most influential pricing factor. We accept all major credit/debit cards (and PayPal), and provide a secure platform where you know your data is safe. We're available 24/7 whenever you are ready to get started.
How is pricing determined?
Pricing is determined by four major factors, but starts at $10 per page at the lowest level and goes higher as the deadline increases.
- Deadline: How quickly you need it
- Writer level: The skill level of the writer
- Page count: How long it needs to be
- Add-ons (optional): Writer upgrades
It's important to note that add-ons are calculated as a percentage of the base price (deadline, level and page count).
Secure payment processing10
We accept all major payment methods and don't store your payment information on our servers; instead, we rely on our payment partners (PayPal and Authorize.NET) to manage sensitive card data.
We also utilize 256-Bit SSL encryption for the entirety of our website, making sure that your experience with us is as safe and secure as possible. Our other security partners help ensure that other critical aspects of our infrastructure are secure as well.

Frequently asked questions
Common questions and answers about editing services from Ultius
If it's your first time considering using Ultius for your editing needs, there is a high chance that a previous customer had similar questions. That's why we have compiled a list of the most common ones for you—to help you get all of the information before making a purchasing decision.
How do revisions work?
If you are unhappy with your editing order after it's completed you can get it revised for free. Just request a revision within seven (7) days of the completed order and the editor will upload a revised draft within three (3) days. Note that urgent revisions may have an extra cost, and other restrictions/limitations apply. We recommend reading the entire revision policy.Full revision policy
Do you guarantee me a good grade with my work?
Please remember that writers for Ultius offer editing services, so the work should be used to supplement your own efforts. So, we do not promise grades, but we do promise you timely delivery, adherence to your instructions, and great writing.Read fair use policy
The prices on the order form don't match what's listed on the pricing page.
Generally, prices on the order form are going to match what's included on our pricing page. However, we may be experiencing surge pricing. Surge pricing is temporary and reflects a situation where we have more orders coming in than writers available.Learn about surge pricing
I am interested in becoming a writer for Ultius. How do I apply?
Ultius is always looking for great freelance writers to join our team. You are welcome to apply through the careers section of the website.Future writers
Where can I find a discount code?
From time to time, Ultius runs promotions and offers discount codes. You can see our promotions in the promotions section (linked below) of our website, in customer email newsletters and by following our Facebook page.See latest promotions
Can I cancel my order after placing it?
Under most circumstances, we unfortunately are not able to cancel orders that are already in progress. Essentially, once you confirm your payment and the order is assigned a writer, we do need to compensate the writer for the time spent on research and for the work that they have put into the order. Since our writers are freelance contractors, this ensures that they are compensated accordingly for their efforts. With that said, we do think you’ll be pleased with your investment, so we thank you for your understanding.
Privacy and security
Can I exchange personal contact information with the editor?
I am being asked by your support team to provide a picture of my payment card and license. Why do you need this information?
Every year, millions of consumers fall victim to identity theft. To combat online payment fraud, we utilize an internal process called Ultius Identity Verification (UIV). The goal of UIV is to minimize fraud by ensuring that the payment you used for purchasing custom writing services actually belongs to you. If your order has been selected for UIV screening, we will ask for two things: a picture of your license (you can black out the address) and a picture of the card you used to pay (we just need to see the last four digits). We store this information securely (encrypted and for 90 days) and only use it to verify your payment method. If you don't feel comfortable verifying your payment method, you can use another one and/or we will be happy to refund your full payment back to you.Learn more about UIV
I called the support team to discuss my order and they are asking for a dial-in pin. What is this and why do I have to provide it?
Ultius takes your order privacy extremely seriously. When you first created your Ultius account, you selected a four-digit numerical code. This code is your dial-in pin and must be provided to our support team before they can discuss any order details with you. We utilize this industry-leading security method to ensure that your privacy (and business with us) is confidential. You can always view and change your dial-in pin from your Ultius profile.
What is the difference between your writers and editors?
The freelance writer is the person who will be assigned to work on your order and you can work side by side with them through the messaging interface. The editors will review the order (after completion) to ensure its accuracy and timely completion. When the writer has completed the order, it will then be submitted to our editing team to be reviewed and scanned for plagiarism before being uploaded for you as a final draft.
What if I am not satisfied? Can I get my money back? What is your refund policy?
If for any reason, you are not satisfied with your order, we do offer free three-day revisions as long as they fall within the revision policy guidelines. We want to make sure that you are satisfied, so contact us if you would like a refund.Revision policy overview
What is the difference between custom writing and editing? What if I need both?
Custom writing consists of an order being created from scratch per the specific instructions and direction that you provide the writer. An editing order is content that you have created yourself (which you upload on the order form) and includes review for the following items: grammatical errors, sentence structure, ensuring the correct citation style is used as well as formatting. Editing also includes improving your writing and making sure that you have complete paragraphs, consistency and organization. If you need additional content added to an editing order, you can contact support and they will be happy to assist you with ordering.
I have multiple orders that I need to place. Can I place them all as one large order to avoid making multiple payments?
In the case that you have multiple custom writing orders, we strongly advise that they be placed as separate orders with the appropriate number of pages, information regarding the order and the corresponding deadline that the order would need to be completed by. This helps avoid confusion and ensures that it's completed by your deadline.
I have used other editing services in the past and had a poor experience. How can I ensure that I won't be scammed?
Unfortunately, there are many websites that offer editing services but fail to deliver in terms of quality, service, and customer outcomes. Ultius proudly differentiates itself by providing a credible and legitimate service that is trusted by customers around the world. We are accredited with the Better Business Bureau (and have an A+ rating), have almost 700 positive reviews on independent review platforms, and are a genuine American company that does not outsource writing overseas. When customers are dissatisfied and leave poor reviews, we reply to each and every one of them and offer a resolution. Given our strong track record of service since 2010, we hope you will consider giving us a chance before giving up your search.Read customer reviews
Is Ultius a legal service to use?
What if I request a writer and they are unavailable?
If you request a writer and they are unavailable to complete your custom writing order, we will make sure that you still get a great writer. The writer level will be automatically upgraded to graduate, and we will give you a 10% discount code for future orders. If you want to cancel your order instead, we will honor that.Writer availability policy
What is the difference between selecting a lower and higher writer level?
The writer level impacts the overall competency of writing you will receive from the writer. For example, if you select a high school level writer, you will receive writing that meets this competency level. Conversely, selecting the doctoral level writing option will result in a doctoral level writer (who has a professional degree). Please understand, selecting high school level does not mean you will work with a writer in high school; instead, it reflects the writing level you will receive.Read more about our writer options
I want a different writer to complete my revision request—is that possible?
The original writer for your order will automatically get the option to work on your revision. If they are not available to complete the revision, we will find you a new writer to complete it. If you have a specific writer in mind or would like someone else to work on it instead, you can always contact our support team and they will do their best to accommodate your request.
Getting help from a real human to solve your problem sounds simple, but many companies get it wrong. We're different. Our commitment to support is clearly defined and backed up by customer feedback.
Any time, any platform, any device
Our support team is truly available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year to answer your questions. Whether it's through voice, email, SMS, live chat or Facebook messenger on your mobile device, we're one tap away.
Real people, quick solutions
Being available 24/7 is only half the battle. The other half is our promise that each of our Las Vegas based support team members are thoroughly trained and enabled to solve your problem in a timely fashion.
Customer success metrics
Our customer satisfaction survey data speaks for itself: a 98% customer satisfaction rating based on data from the first half of 2016. Plus, most of our customer reviews indicate that we blow them away with our commitment to service.
Our Availability Intelligence technology ensures that if you request a specific writer, there is a 90% chance they will be available and accept it.
When you use our advanced requested writer feature for your custom writing order, we work extremely hard to ensure that your writer is going to be available. We use various signals and internal data points to predict whether the writer will accept the order in the first place.
For example, our writers have profile settings like vacation mode where they can mark themselves as away. We also consider the writer's current workload so they have time to complete your writing order.
These are just a few of the many signals we use when deciding whether to show a writer as available - and we're improving our technology every day to make it even more reliable. As of October (2016), the requested writer acceptance rate is 90%, meaning that there is a 9/10 chance they will be available.
Please make sure to read our writer availability policy before requesting a writer from the order form.
While our writer matching technology works extremely well, it's not perfect. We want to ensure that your custom writing order is completed by the best possible writer, so that's why we provide a courtesy reassignment option.
If you're not entirely satisfied with your writer throughout the order process, let our support team know and an editor will find you a new one, no questions asked. We have a dedicated writer liaison on our staff who will manually find the best expert for you. This add-on service is provided free of charge as a good faith commitment to ensuring you get the most bang for your buck.
