You can be part of a semester long course in which students engage in a meaningful mentor-mentee relationship exploring the field of psychology, professionalism, and campus resources. Enroll as a mentee for 1 unit (credit or no credit) or as a mentor for 3 units of upper division (graded).  Mentee applications are accepted year-round.  For more information, check out our Frequently Asked Questions or inquire within the Prospects Office at Amador 358.
