Students at all degree levels must be in full-standing status to register for a mentorship.

Prerequisites for the Mentorship

  1. Student submits required forms (appendix A, mentor resume, learning objectives)
  2. The mentor’s resume must list the highest degree attained. **
  3. Mentorship learning objectives and duties (which student and proposed mentor put together). Student must have a minimum of five objectives and the mentor must initial each one. Student can have as many as he/she feels can be accomplished, and they must be formatted like the example in the handbook. Learning Objectives should encompass a task from each course in the student’s program of study, if possible.
  4. If mentor meets criteria, mentorship advisor is assigned to review learning objectives.
  5. Student’s file is submitted to Dean for Academic Affairs for approval.
  6. Once approved, student is notified that he/she can now register online & pay mentorship fees.
  7. Once officially registered, student then starts accruing hours.

** If mentor does not have the required graduate degree, but has enough experience, student can request an exception by providing justification for his/her selection of mentor.

Guidelines for Writing Learning Objectives

  • Learning objectives should be formatted as in the Mentorship Handbook, i.e. each objective should list the objective, measurement tool, and expected outcome.
  • Learning objectives must be written in an active tense as opposed to a passive tense, i.e., performing a tangible task instead of an intangible or immeasurable task.
  • There is a minimum requirement of five learning objectives.
  • Ideally, (but this is not always possible) the learning objectives should encompass a task from each course in the student’s program of study.
