Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University




The Student Writing Center (SWC) at Jefferson's Center City campus is a free resource available to all Center City and Abington campus students, as well as Jefferson's distance learners.

Our trained staff can assist you with all stages of the writing process, from brainstorming to drafting to proofreading. Whatever the assignment, the SWC is here to help. 

The goal is to provide you with the strategies you need to become a better writer. Our staff can also help you develop ways to reduce writing anxiety and increase your overall writing confidence. Book your appointment now!

Our primary offering is 30- or 60-minute in-person tutoring sessions. In these sessions, you will work with your tutor to identify strengths and areas for development/improvement in your writing. Read more about what to expect in an appointment.

We're excited to announce that we've launched evening drop-in hours at Scott Memorial Library! Click here for more information.
