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.
TAs or student mentors provide the mentoring hours for their assigned courses.
If the schedules of all stakeholders permit, every effort is made by the AMP officer to accommodate the student’s choice of the mentoring hours provided.
