New Student Mentor Program



The New Student Mentoring Program is a first-year experience program focused on easing the transition of incoming EOP students to SJSU. Participants are empowered through purposeful weekly meetings with trained peer mentors who provide motivation, accountability and a process for engagement with campus.

We will pair you with an experienced, high-achieving EOP student mentor for a full year. Your Peer Mentor will serve as a guide, a friend and source of support and motivation throughout the year. Peer Mentors are students who successfully transitioned into SJSU themselves. They will be able to teach you about the campus, university life and how to attain your goal of a university degree.

In this program, you will be expected to:

  • Attend meetings every week for one hour with a trained peer mentor
  • Participate in monthly meetings designed to build the essential skills you need for college and your career
