Services offered by Upswing:


Upswing offers a ‘round-the-clock network of subject-matter tutors. Through Upswing Tutoring, students can schedule a tutoring session at a time that works for them, including after hours and on weekends — the times when most students are studying. More than 400 subjects are covered, with the ability to include your own campus tutors to the platform, as well. With Upswing Tutoring, it doesn’t matter when a student needs support as they will have a timely and seamless way to access the subject-specific help they need to succeed and persist.


Upswing Advising is the perfect extension to your advising program. With Upswing Advising students have an easy and effective way to connect your advising team. Upswing Advising can help with advising basics, such as course selection, program requirements and graduation registration while providing a seamless way for students to schedule and meet with their advisor — virtually, with no need to hike across campus or wait in a long line. Best of all, by taking care of routing time-consuming tasks, Upswing Advising gives your advisors a way to help the students who need it most, including first generation, adult, underrepresented and underserved students who may not be familiar with the advising process.
