New Mentors: CSV 302
During the fall, mentors must complete a three-credit seminar which will guide you through the mentoring process. This course will meet for eight weeks only. CSV 302 teaches you mentoring skills and allows you to share your experiences with other mentors. All mentors will create an e-portfolio evidencing their personal growth during the semester.

Returning Mentors: CSV 301 or CSV 302
Returning mentors (non-business only) have the option to take CSV 301. CSV 301 is a one-credit course for returning mentors that meets online via Sakai. Mentors will have the opportunity to post and read topics written by other mentors, offer insight, and provide support for each other. However, returning mentors can take CSV 302 again if they wish.
Note: Returning business mentors must take CSV 302.
CSV Credit Overrides: If your CSV course will put you at more than 19 credits, we will apply a credit waiver to your account so you will not be charged by the University for enrolling in more than 19 credits.
