How to Apply

Campus Connections is a service-learning/fieldwork course (COUN4950). Any interested undergraduate students can apply. This course has been approved for the Summit requirements of the Compass Curriculum.

Mentors can expect to earn 3-credits for their participation in the program and should plan to attend a weekly lab session from 3:00pm-9:00pm. Youth mentees participate from 4:00pm-8:00pm, arriving an hour after and leaving an hour before mentors, mentor coaches, and instructors. This allows time for mentors to prepare for and wrap up the evening.

With Campus Connections, you will:

  • Build connections
  • Earn credit
  • Become a role model
  • Provide academic and emotional support
  • Engage in pro-social activities
  • Try new challenges with your mentee

Applications are also open to some graduate-level students. Contact the program staff for more information (cconnect@uccs.edu). There are no course pre-requisites for Campus Connections, however, in order to become a mentor, students must:
