Policies- Swayam Siddhi Degree College



Mentoring is a strategy to provide students with emotional and moral support they need to achieve learning goals' with respect to higher education. Mentoring is a two way interaction between 'Teachers and Students'.

It sets up a healthy relationship and improves rapport. Experience of the college life is very different from home life. During graduation  years, students are financially dependent on the family, but they learn to manage their expenses. These factors bring about changes in the behavioral aspects of the students. Also during college life, they are introduced to wide range of technical /professional courses under the programmes offered  to them. Mentoring provides a reliable and comprehensive support system, to motivate students to excel in both academic and non-academic fields and to the most of their life at the college and ensures that the students adapt to the dynamic learning environment and read their ways into highly successful careers. SSDNC is committed to mentor its students by providing them one to one counselling and support from experts as and when required.
