Peer Advising

What is a Peer Advisor?

A Peer Advisor serves as an additional unit of academic support for freshman and sophomore students in the Academic Success Center (ASC) at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Peer advisors help students select classes, provide information on academic policies and procedures according to the University’s catalog, assist with registration questions and waitlist procedures, and make appropriate referrals to campus resources.  They also provide information and guidance based on their experiences as students at UL Lafayette.  Peer advisors hold drop-in and appointment hours and may participate in various on campus events representing the ASC.
