CHSS Undergraduate Advising Center

Peer Advisors

Peer advisors will advise only freshman students who are declared, interest, minor or changing their major to a CHSS major. Peer advisors will help freshman navigate through the core courses and be able to get 30 hour holds removed. Peer Advisors will operate on a walk in basis only, not by appointment. Freshman walk in advising will be available on the following dates and times:

Monday – Friday 8:30am – 4:30pm

The Undergraduate Advising Center is staffed by Peer Advisors from the College of Humanities and Social Sciences. If you are interested in becoming a Peer Advisor, qualified candidates must have a 3.0 or higher GPA. When a Peer Advisor positions is vacated, we send out applications and job descriptions to all qualified candiadtes in that major.
