Counseling for PEERS Students

PEERS counselors help students plan their courses, learn better study habits, give feedback about the program, and answer any questions that they may have.

PEERS students must meet with both their departmental counselor and their special PEERS counselor. Regular meetings with your counselors will help you plan courses, learn about major and general education requirements, and help troubleshoot any potential problems.

Who to meet with, and when?

As PEERS Students you are required to:
  • Freshmen (last name A-L): you are required to meet with Evan Tucker, your PEERS Counselor, once a quarter.
  • Freshmen (last name M-Qa): you are required to meet with Iris Guzman, your PEERS Counselor, once a quarter.
