After making the appointment, you will be prompted to upload your paper directly to the SWC scheduling site. During your “appointment” the eTutor will review your paper. At the end of the “session” you can re-access your revised and edited work directly from the SWC schedule.

For papers 10 pages or longer, we ask that you reserve a full 60-minute appointment.
