Writing Support

Students can request writing consultations through one-to-one and small group meetings, and sessions can focus on any stage of the writing process. Writing manuals and personal guidance are available on expository composition and resume development, as well as AMA and APA citation formats used in Samuel Merritt University writing assignments. Staff can also assist students and alumnae with resume and professional materials development.
