The S.M.A.R.T. program is a peer mentoring program designed to provide assistance to new, first time students from successful continuing students. The goal of the student mentor/mentee connection is to foster a helpful relationship between mentors and mentees that will assist incoming students with the challenges associated with being a first time student at CSM. S.M.A.R.T. participants have the opportunity to assist their mentees by providing information about resources and sharing their knowledge and insight about how to succeed in college.
- Successful completion of a minimum of 24 units

S.M.A.R.T. applications received before March 11, 2013 will be given priority consideration.
