This section of 304 is for students who have already mentored for a term. This experience will allow mentors to continue seeing their mentee while also being a peer mentor to students new to the program. This class provides instruction and practical experience in teaching or leading a group under the supervision of department faculty. The course extends knowledge of small group behavior and the management and facilitation of small groups, and develops the skills and knowledge necessary to an undergraduate teaching assistant in undergraduate classes at the University of Michigan. 

FERPA: the Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act. Students enrolled in this course are required to complete the Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act training module. This is a Federal mandate and will be completed through this UM training module. Submit the certification of completion via the Code of Conduct & FERPA Training Certificates Form. It can be submitted on the same form as the COC certificate.

CODE OF CONDUCT TRAINING (COC): the University of Michigan requires that all students enrolled in a course that attends a site where minors are present, complete the Code of Conduct (COC) module through the Children on Campus program.

A Flu Vaccination may also be required based on the site assigned.
