Associate One Student to One Mentor

Intended Audience: Affiliation User 


Users affiliated with an institution can link a mentor with a student to facilitate their success in an online course. The steps below explain how to create this association within the Student Learning Portal (SLP). If you need to link a mentor with multiple students, refer to the Associate Multiple Students to a Mentor article.


  1. First, click the Students tab from the top menu bar.
  2. Next, select the linked name located in the "Student" column for the student who requires a mentor association.
    The Active Student page is displaying a table containing a list of active students within their affiliation. An arrow points to the linked name in the Student column.
  3. Then scroll to the “Actions” section and tap the Associate to Mentor option within the Actions section in the left navigation menu. At this point, any associated mentors will appear in the results grid.
    The Student Profile page contains an Actions section within the left navigation menu. An arrow pointes to the Associate to Mentor option in that left menu. The profile page also shows no associations to a mentor for the selected student.
  4. Continue to add a mentor by selecting the “Add new association” link at the top of the page.
  5. Afterward, choose the “MENTOR” option from the Role drop-down field.
  6. Then choose the mentor’s name from the User drop-down field and tap the Save button.
    Note: If the mentor is not listed in the drop-down menu, follow the Add Mentor Account process.
    The Associate to Mentor page shows an arrow pointing to the Add new association link on the top left of the page. The Association Info pop-up dialog box is displayed as a result of tapping the link. The Role and User drop-down fields must be used to select the mentor that should be assigned. An arrow then points to the Save button at the bottom of the pop-up.
  7. At this time, refresh the page to display the association.
    The Mentor Association page is shown displaying the now associated mentor.  

Additional Information:

  • If a mentor needs to be removed from one student, locate the student profile as mentioned before and at step 7, tap the view icon and then tap the Delete button.
    The mentor association page shows an arrow pointing to the view icon. A pop-up dialog box is showing the mentor role and name with an arrow pointing to the delete button.
  • When a mentor needs to be disassociated with multiple students, proceed with Disassociate Multiple Students from a Mentor.
