Under the direction of the Office of Academic Advising, academic peer advisors work closely with our faculty advisors to help incoming first-year and transfer students successfully navigate the academic rigor of college life.
What is an Academic Peer Advisor?
An academic peer advisor (PA) is a junior or senior student hired and by the Office of Academic Advising. They undergo rigorous training before the academic year begins with additional educational sessions held weekly over the course of the year.
They are highly knowledgeable peers, who help you interpret university policies and procedures, are a great resource when selecting courses and exploring possible majors/minors, and are invaluable when it comes to navigating the registration process.
They offer academic guidance and keep you informed about important campus deadlines and events. You can also count on your PA to be caring and friendly face on campus.
Below are a few of main videos created to help you get registered, run/interpret your advising report, and how to use a what-if scenario to plan out possible majors.
These and a number of other important videos are also available to help you get Registration Ready!
