Peer Advising Program

Who We Are

The Peer Advising Program is a student group that assists admitted freshman and transfer students in their academic transition to William & Mary. All new students are connected with upper-level students who serve as Peer Advisors. The Peer Advisors operate with the Office of Academic Advising to support the advising process for new students by

  • Providing leadership and foster a network of peer support.
  • Serving as role models and provide information on curricular and co-curricular opportunities at W&M.
  • Informing new students on policy and procedures as well as campus resources.
  • Teaching the registration process to new students in preparation for scheduling classes.
  • Supporting the Office of Academic Advising staff and faculty advisors.
