- Mentoring staff regularly monitors and counsels the students in the field of academics, training research interests and encourages participating in extra and co-curricular activities.
- Student mentoring system starts during the first year immediately after the student gets an admission into the college. Faculties who are teaching first year students are allotted with a number of students (1:15 to 1:20) as their mentees.

- Interaction with newly joined students regarding any personal information, strengths/ weaknesses and information on mentoring is given during the orientation program itself.
- A new customized student mentorship booklet is maintained by the faculty for each student which includes their personal information, academic performance, interests, efforts, subject teacher suggestions, observations and remarks by the mentor.
- The mentor might discuss individually or in a group to all the mentees and rectify their problems. Each periodic status of academic and performance related issues are discussed with the students and is informed to their parents/guardians.
- Mentors encourage the mentees to develop and improve their skills and talents in appropriate fields and aim for an overall development of the student. This will be continued till the student completes his/her graduation.
