The design of investigation that sustains is the quasi-experimental study in which participated 43 students of whom 81 per cent are women and 19 per cent are men. The instrument used for obtaining information was: the Questionnaire on academic writing of Gutierrez and Florez (2011). The results obtained indicate that 96% of university students state that they have difficulties in the production of written texts howto be in writing, spelling and organization of ideas. Of the analyzed data, it is concluded that the majority of students recognize the difficulties of writing that they have in the university level and that the causes are attributed to the teaching received at the primary and secondary of their schooling process and they emphasize the importance ofthe academic literacy at the university level.
