The Online Writing Center (OWC) allows you to schedule an appointment online, upload your paper, and then come back to the OWC during your appointment day and time to talk with a tutor about your paper online, either using video/audio or real-time chat. You and the tutor are both able to view the paper together and make any needed changes, and you are able to ask any questions you might have during the online session. Our online hours change from semester to semester. Check the current online tutoring hours on the lefthand side of this page.
If you are a graduate student, and you would like to work with a trained graduate tutor, you can schedule an online or face-to-face appointment through WCOnline as well.
To make an appointment, click here. (Please note: if you have never used WCOnline before, you will have to create a new username and password—your SVSU login information won't work.)
After logging in, choose the appropriate schedule and then your desired appointment time. (White blocks indicate an appointment is still available.) Fill out the appointment form and then save the appointment. (Note: Appointments are available for 30 minutes, but you can create a longer session by adjusting the time at the top of the appointment form.) When prompted, upload your paper for the tutor, who will try to read the paper prior to your appointment. Please note: you must schedule your appointment 24 hours in advance.
