Peer Advising

What is Peer Advising?

Peer Advising is a service that the Office of Academic Advising & Transfer Transition provides to first-year students (Criminal Justice and Communication Sophomores as well) to help them understand the Universities Common Core of Studies, registration procedures, and important Univeristy policies.

When Should I Meet with a Peer Advisor?

First year students are required to meet with a peer advisor prior to meeting with their faculty advisor or professional advisor.  We recommend that you get peer advised at least a week prior to your scheduled advising time with your faculty or professional advisor.  

Do I Make an Appointment?

Appointments are not necessary.  Peer advisors are located in the Office of Academic Advising & Transfer Transition and are available Monday - Friday between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.  During peak advising times we will remain open until 7 p.m. Monday - Thursday.  Walk in anytime and a peer advisor will be able to assist you.

How Do I Become a Peer Advisor?

If you are interested in becoming a peer advisor please email Nicole West at or visit her in person in ParenzoHall, Room K/L for the application.
