Peer Advising

Peer Advising

What do Peer Advisors do?

​Peer Advisors help students with basic advising questions and serve as a resource to connect University College students with their Advisors and available campus resources. Peer Advisors can answer students’ general questions about scheduling appointments, registering for classes, finding campus resources, etc. Peer Advisors can also help students with software programs like Connect, Banner Self-Service, and DegreeWorks.

How can Peer Advisors help students?

Peer Advisors can assist University College students with the following:

  • Scheduling appointments and using Connect
  • Preparing for academic advising appointments
  • Reviewing early and midterm alerts and discussing the next steps
  • Connecting to campus resources
  • Assisting with registration (understanding dates, terminology, errors, etc.)
  • Understanding how to use advising/registration software (Banner Self Service, DegreeWorks, and Schedule Wizard)
