Commuter Assistance Mentorship Program

What is CAMP?

The Commuter Assistance Mentorship Program (CAMP) is a program that matches upper-class commuters with first-year commuter students to assist with their transition to college. Your first year as a commuter can be overwhelming. Consider getting connected with a Commuter Mentor to help you make the most of your first year here at Montclair State University! We encourage you to apply for the Commuter Assistance Mentorship Program (CAMP).

CAMP applications will now open through Friday, July 29. They will be accepted on a first come basis, once all spots are filled students will be waitlisted until a spot opens up for them. The application will be used to help with the matching process so we encourage you to answer as detailed as possible. After the application is completed, students will receive a confirmation email and their mentor as well as next steps by the second week of August.


We Are Here To Help!

Not only will you get help with all things Commuter Life but you will gain new experiences, be invited to exclusive CAMP social events and have the opportunity to network with and meet new people. There is still time to sign up for the program, but spots are limited!
