Peer Advising Program

Overview

The peer advising program in the School of Business was launched in response to increased advising need as well as the new freshman advising requirement. Peer advisers now handle all express advising and collectively cover 18 hours of advising per week.  All peer advisers go through a comprehensive training program that familiarizes them with PSU processes and policies. Peer advisors offer not only knowledge of the SBA system and guidelines, but also firsthand experience in the classes. All peer advisers are highly qualified to offer academic planning and other curriculum based guidance to all students who plan to graduate with a business degree from PSU.
