Registration page is open to Alumni throughout the calendar year. Students are granted access 1 month prior to the beginning of the academic year. To register, scroll to the top of the page and click on "Register", or click here. More information on the registration process can be found on this page.
Once registered, students can scroll through the online database of registered Alumni and choose a mentor on their own. The mentor will receive an email with a link to the student's profile and an option to Accept or Decline the request.
If the request is accepted, the student will be notified via email. At this time, both the student and the mentor can log into their profile to see more information about one another. It is the student's responsibility to make the first contact, and at that point mentoring will begin.
If the request is declined, the student will be notified via email and will be encouraged to search for another mentor. It is important to note that students can send a request to only 1 mentor at a time, so Alumni are encouraged to respond to the request at their earliest convenience
The mentoring relationship will last for the duration of the academic year. Mentors and students are expected to meet at least once in a 30-day period. A meeting is considered to be a conversation (phone, in-person, Skype, etc.) Written communication (text, email, chat, etc.) may be used as a supplemental form of communication. Both mentors and students will have access to the website, but it is the student's responsibility to record the communication. We ask this be done in order to monitor the progress and help maintain the relationships. We will not be able to see the content of your conversation, only the date of the meetings - confidentiality is crucial!
