About Grammarly

Thanks to support from the Student Technology Fund, all current MacEwan students, faculty, and staff can now access Grammarly Premium! 

Email invitations were sent to eligible MacEwan members in early September. They would have come from Grammarly (not MacEwan), and they would have had "ACTION NEEDED" in the subject line, making them easy to mistake for spam, so if you did not receive yours, be sure to check your junk folder.

If you are currently enrolled in classes, teaching classes, or are a staff member but did not receive an invitation, contact Oubah Osman at
