If the mentor cancels a session, they are required to provide 24 hours notice and provide options for rescheduling to the best of their ability.


If you do not cancel or come more than 15-minutes late to your session, this will be considered a no-show and your session will be canceled.

Be respectful

Mutual respect is expected at all times within the mentor-mentee relationship. Please maintain appropriate language, tone and behavior at all times.

Honor Code

Please be mindful of the university’s academic integrity policy as you receive mentoring. All coursework you turn in for a grade must be your own work.

Keep it professional
