South Arkansas Community College has developed a mentoring program for our first-time, full-time degree-seeking students as well as our students currently on academic probation. SouthArk is dedicated to engaging with these students to provide guidance and encouragement to help them learn, grow, and graduate. Eligible students who choose to participate will be identified by Enrollment Services and matched with a mentor. Our mentors are trained, willing, and dedicated to teaching, inspiring, motivating and empowering our students. SouthArk students, "This is Your Time."
