A student accesses the AWC online.

AWC Online allows students to video conference with AWC Tutors and work on their papers online and in real-time through WebEX.

If you are interested in conferencing with a tutor online, choose "AWC Online" as the reason when scheduling an AWC appointment. Also, please include "I want this to be an online appointment" in the appointment scheduling comment box to give us further notice.

After scheduling the appointment, you will be emailed a link to an online video conference room. At the time of your appointment, ensure that you are in the video conference room to discuss your writing with your tutor. 

A student receives feedback online.

With AWC Tutor Feedback, you can submit essays of six pages or less that are double-spaced, or three pages or less that are single-spaced, and one of the AWC tutors will review it, respond with helpful feedback, and email your draft back to you within 48 hours.

Please note that submissions will not be reviewed while the AWC is closed. Submit your essays via this submission form link. Our tutors will respond within 24-48 hours.
