The Registrar will assign a faculty mentor to each enrolled student. The name of your faculty mentor appears in your Student Services Center tab in the "Advisor" section in PeopleSoft.
Except for the first semester of your first year, you are required to meet with your faculty mentor once each semester and to have your mentor sign a designated form which the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs will make available to you in advance of any scheduled meetings. You are then required to submit that signed form to the Registrar’s Office after your meeting. Failure to submit the signed form will mean that an ADV holdwill be placed on your account and you will not be able to register for the next semester’s classes.
In order to facilitate the meetings between mentors and mentees, the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs will designate one Friday each semester as “Mentoring Day” when students and faculty should plan to meet, unless they mutually prefer a different date, or there is a truly irreconcilable conflict on the part of either of them on the designated Mentoring Day.
Special Note for the Spring 2019 Semester. Due to the extraordinary circumstances arising by virtue of the outbreak of COVID-19, we are waiving the requirement that students meet with their mentors prior to registration. You are instead required to meet (virtually) with your mentor before Friday April 17. Failure to do so may result deregistering you from the Fall 2020 semester.
