New Student Mentors (NSM) 

The New Student Mentor program is a First-Year Experience program focused on easing the transition of incoming Frosh EOP students to SJSU. Participants are empowered through meticulously designed 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.


I Can / I Will (ICIW)

I Can / I Will is a First-Year Experience Program focused on increasing the retention and graduation rates of African-American and Latino males in the Educational Opportunity Program at San Jose State University. Participants are empowered through meticulously designed weekly meetings with trained peer mentors who provide motivation, accountability, a process for engagement with the campus, assistance in developing a "road map to college," and a sense of community.

The Academic Coaching for Educational Success (ACES) Program strives to provide students with the necessary skills and tools to excel throughout their academic experience at SJSU. Through mentorship and the sharing of resources, ACES Coaches provide a source of support and accountability for students as they pursue their baccalaureate degree.
