Peer Academic Advisor (PAA) Applications
Peer Academic Advisors (PAAs) serve as liaisons to the Office of Academic Advising (OAA) and support the office's mission to strive for an unparalleled environment for undergraduates to explore opportunities, identify goals, and implement plans to reach those goals. During the academic year, PAAs are a resource to all students at their college for information and guidance on academic issues.
