Mentors, ideally in the student's area of study, will provide help in understanding the curriculum and the student's remaining required coursework as well as provide guidance, support, and referral to resources that will benefit new students in a new environment. Mentors have the ability to influence, encourage, and guide transfer students to enhance their academic success.
