SSHA Peer Mentors

The School of Social Sciences, Humanities and Arts is proud to present the addition of Peer Mentors to our academic advising program. The Peer Mentor Program is designed to help incoming freshmen make a smooth transition from high school to the college environment. They will keep you up-to-date on campus events, share their personal experiences and offer help and also advise on adjusting to University life.

The Peer Mentors will provide guidance and insight for a wide variety of subjects including, but not limited to: 

  • Answering registration questions
  • Semester planning
  • Understanding Major and Minor requirements
  • Reading your audit and MyDegreePath
  • Filling out forms
  • Knowing important dates and deadlines
  • Finding useful and relevant campus resources
  • Assisting with the transition from high school to college

The SSHA Peer Mentor Staff are located on the second floor of the Classroom & Office Building (COB) at UC Merced.  Students wishing to speak with a Peer Mentor should check in with the SSHA Advising Reception office in Room 204.
