High school career
Mondy attended Catholic Central High School in Grand Rapids, Michigan and was rated a two-star recruit by both Scout.com and Rivals.com. He received scholarship offers from Providence and Central Michigan.
Mondy started his career at Providence before transferring to Oakland following his sophomore season. Mondy led the Big East Conference in steals his sophomore season and led The Summit League in steals his redshirt junior season. Oakland switched to the Horizon League prior to his senior season. If Mondy leads the Horizon League in steals, he will become the first player in NCAA history to lead three different conferences in steals.

Mondy averaged 3.4 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game as a true freshman at Providence. The team finished with a 12–19 record.
During his last season at Providence, Mondy let the Big East in steals per game with 2.1. He averaged 7.7 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game. He received the team's Marvin Barnes Defensive Player of the Year award.
Mondy transferred to Oakland and was required to sit out a season due to NCAA transfer rules. He used his redshirt season during 2011–12 in order to have two years of eligibility remaining at Oakland.
Mondy was named The Summit League's Newcomer of the Year and All-League Second Team after leading the league in steals and assists per game (6.0). He was the conference Player of the Week on January 7, 2013 after averaging 14.5 points, 5.5 assists, 4.0 steals and 3.0 rebounds against Nebraska–Omaha and Alabama.
Mondy and teammate Dante Williams were arrested the morning of November 14 on rape charges in Culver City, California. The Los Angeles County District Attorney declined to press charges due to a lack of evidence. Oakland conducted its own internal investigation and also determined that no crime was committed. The players were suspended for two games for violating curfew. Mondy missed three games total, against California, Gonzaga and Louisiana–Lafayette.
In the January 26, 2014, game against Illinois–Chicago, Mondy made a three-point field goal at the buzzer to give Oakland a 76–75 win. Mondy received the inbounds pass under his own basket with 4.4 seconds on the clock. He dribbled the length of the court before hitting the pull up shot. Officials reviewed video of the play for approximately five minutes to determine if his foot was on the three-point line before confirming the attempt was indeed a three-pointer.

After sitting out the 2014–15 season, Mondy again entered the NBA Development League draft, this time being selected by the Westchester Knicks in the sixth round of the 2015 edition. He again failed to make the team's final roster, getting cut by the Knicks on November 7.
