How to Get a Mentor
Any incoming transfer student can request a mentor through the Transfer Mentor Program. Mentors are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis and the application cycle typically opens in late spring for the upcoming fall semester. Mentors and mentees are primarily paired based on academic major and/or professional track, but applicants may be paired on other factors. Program commitment for mentees is a full academic year, consisting of the fall and spring semesters.
Incoming transfer students can apply for a mentor beginning in May 2021.
The Transfer Mentor Program is a peer-to-peer mentoring program, which means a mentor will be a current undergraduate student at UT Dallas. While they are trained to assist in academic, social, and leadership support, they are not tutors, advisors, staff, or faculty at the University of Texas at Dallas. They are service-oriented student leaders who have recently been in your shoes and want to help our newest Comets succeed.
