The Center for Undergraduate Advising

About Peer Advising

Peer advisors are an essential part of the Fox School of Business’ Center of Undergraduate Advising.

They provide the perspective of an upper-class student in the Fox School of Business.  More importantly, peer advisors assist students’ transition into Temple University by sharing their strategies for academic success and knowledge of university resources.

Our peer advisors are recruited from amongst the brightest in the Fox School of Business, trained by the Center for Undergraduate Advising and mentored by an academic advisor. The peer advising program is coordinated by Elvita Quiñones, M.S., Associate Director of the Center for Undergraduate Advising.

Peer advisors provide the following kinds of assistance to students:

  • Help facilitate conversations between the student and their assigned academic advisor or faculty advisor.
  • Assist with registration through OWLnet or Self-Service Banner.
  • Help with the use and understanding of DARS (Degree Audit Reporting System.)
  • Help with the understanding of student’s program evaluation sheet also known as a checklist.
  • Help with creating an academic plan.
  • Help schedule appointments with an advisor.
  • Help find the answers to questions in College and University web-based resources.
  • Answer general questions about degree requirements, academic support services, university policies and procedures.
  • Direct students to the Center for Undergraduate Advising in Speakman Hall Room 101.
  • Direct students to other college or university offices as needed.
  • Provide information about opportunities, events and academic pursuits outside of the classroom.
