Each program on Vygo has different restrictions and approval processes that have been put in place by its Program Manager. There are three common types of program restrictions and approvals:

  • Program open to all users: All mentees and mentors at your institution are able to join the program automatically, and no approval is required from the Program Manager.
  • Program Restricted to Approved Mentors and Mentees Only: To join a program with this restriction, both mentors and mentees need to be pre-approved by the Program Manager. If you are not yet on the pre-approved list, when you click ‘Join Program’, your program status will update to ‘Pending Approval Status’. Next, contact the Program Manager to ask them for access. Their details are available on the right side of the program information page – just click the speech bubble icon.
  • Program Restricted to Approved Mentors and Open to all Mentees: In order to access a program with this restriction, mentors need to have been pre-approved by the Program Manager, but mentees can gain access automatically. If you are a mentor who is not yet on the pre-approved list, when you click ‘Join Program’, your program status will update to ‘Pending Approval Status’. Next, contact the Program Manager directly to request access using their details, which are available on the right side of the program information page when you click the speech bubble icon.
