For students with good academic standing, academic support is provided as per student request at any point in time and the mentoring hours are scheduled by the AMP officer to best fit their schedule.
For Probation and Gateway students, the academic support starts from the second week of the semester.
Students receive a calendar invitation for mentoring hours with an allocated time slot that fits their schedule;
assigned TA/student mentor and location.
Mentoring hours are generally provided in study rooms. However, some mentoring hours can be scheduled in classrooms across campus. It is important to note that once a calendar invitation is sent to students, the
location will remain the same until the end of the semester.
Students’ academic performance is constantly monitored and if an area for improvement is recognized students will be called for an academic mentoring meeting held at the AMP office to discuss potential areas of improvement.
You will meet with an academic mentoring officer who will disclose what areas of improvement are noticed by your instructors. The student and the AMP officer will assess the reasons for unsatisfactory academic performance and based on discussion; propose a possible strategy for student improvement. Advice and guidance can range from self-study to dropping the course, depending on the case.
It is important to note that mentoring meeting discussions between the student and the AMP staff are strictly confidential
Student mentoring is an on-campus job, you will get paid according to the number of hours you provided and to the hour rates announced by the student development. In addition to this, you will develop your technical and soft to better equip yourself with tools for the job market.
