It’s the start of a new semester and we want to make sure you have the resources you need to set yourself up for success. We also want you to know that we’re here to support you every step of the way. That’s why we’ve worked diligently to make most of our services and resources available online.

Online Appointments and Consultations

  • Support you in developing strategies for organizing your ideas and structuring your thesis, papers, and chapters.
  • Assist you in controlling procrastination and perfectionism to complete your assignments on time.
