  • Perform well on a comprehensive grammar exam and on an editing exam (that tests the student’s ability to identify higher and lower order skill deficiencies)
  • Participate in a shadowing apprenticeship experience with professional consultants
  • Complete two supervised consultations

Program benefits include

  • A paid experience

  • Ongoing professional development
  • An opportunity to make a difference in the academic lives of fellow students
