ACADEMIC MENTORSHIP PROGRAM

CLOSED

Our Virtual Academic Mentorship Program was created to assist first-generation rising seniors and transferring community college students in Oxnard with their college/university applications process.

As a mentee, you will be paired with an OSS mentor that will assist you with all of your applications, such as FAFSA or Dream Act, UC app, CSU app, the Common app, and more!  Since our mentors will have already gone through this process themselves, they will be able to guide you in completing these applications, correctly and promptly.

 

This is a need and identity-based program, meaning no GPA requirements. This program is meant to assist students who will be applying for undergraduate universities starting in the fall of 2021, meaning high school seniors and community college students.
