Making a smooth transition into University life is an important step toward achieving success. Texas A&M International University's Advising and Mentoring Center helps students get started on the right path through the first year experience.
Our full-time staff consists of academic advisors who provide degree evaluation and registration assistance for freshmen and sophomore students, retention specialists who monitor the academic progress of students who have been placed on academic probation, and an athletic academic coordinator who assists student athletes as they progress through their degree plans in compliance with NCAA regulations. Our part-time staff includes student mentors who offer resource information and academic guidance to freshmen and sophomore students.
Our program promotes student success by coordinating an array of services that are responsive to our students' needs. A student mentor is assigned to each incoming student and will meet individually with the student for the first year. These weekly meetings will cover a variety of topics, and will also allow the new students a resource for any questions they may have.
The Advising and Mentoring Center also helps develop networks that communicate first year student needs to the University community. Our office is located in the Zaffirini Student Success Center, room 222.
