Is Our Academic Program Right for You?

Our academic program is ideal for schools planning to purchase more than 50 licenses. WordRake will provide unlimited one-year licenses of WordRake for Microsoft Word for all students, faculty, and staff for a $5,000 flat fee. We will also provide licenses for school-owned computers, computer labs, libraries, publications, etc. Use our pricing calculator to see your savings under this offer.

Considering a Smaller Program?

We are committed to providing the highest quality editing software, great service, and transparent pricing regardless of your order size. If your school needs fewer than 50 licenses, our standard educational discount for 15% off, plus our volume pricing, will be a better fit for you.

Let’s Collaborate

We look forward to collaborating with you to find ways to incorporate WordRake into your programming. As distance learning becomes the norm in academia, improving written communication becomes essential. We can help reinforce instruction and enhance distance learning. Contact us to start co-creating your program now!

Spread the Word

As part of this program, WordRake will issue a press release to announce the collaboration, and we hope participating schools will do the same. Assuming you’re happy with the results, we hope to publish a case study for each participating school.

License Distribution

Our goal is for everyone to use WordRake and to feel its benefits. We’ll work with you to find the right method to distribute WordRake licenses, but we believe adoption and benefits will be higher if we can directly distribute licenses to faculty, staff, and students. We will keep all email addresses confidential and not use them for marketing purposes. Other license distribution options include a self-serve sign up page, or working with your IT department for distribution.

The Suffolk Model

In 2019, we worked with Suffolk to develop our program model. Check out these examples.

Here’s what Professors, Students, and Administrators say about WordRake

Roberta Johnson

Roberta Johnson

Director of Student Financial Aid, Iowa State University

It’s a comfort knowing I can just write, without agonizing over it like I usually do, and then ‘rake’ my text with WordRake. WordRake’s suggestions are so quick and succinct, and they add punch to my writing.

Julie Johnson

Julie Johnson

Senior Associate Vice President, CSU Stanislaus

I have been using WordRake since its launch. It is a great product when you do not have someone to check your work and it helps you to write efficiently over time.

Roger Whitridge

Professor, Orange Coast College

Any writing can use an objective eye. WordRake can be a dependable tool to help fill that role and give added confidence for clear communication.

Neil Johnson

Neil Johnson

President, William Howard Taft University

Prior to adopting WordRake, we were guilty of using far too many superfluous words, resulting in redundant, unneeded and certainly unnecessary sentences.

Laura Johnson

Laura Johnson

Executive Administrative Assistant, Bay de Noc Community College

WordRake has decreased the amount of time I spend reviewing submissions for reports and correspondence. It is a valuable tool I depend on almost daily.

Write with Confidence.
