2019-20 Arts Peer Academic Advisors

The Arts Peer Academic Advisors (PAAs) are experienced upper-division students trained to assist any undergraduate major in the Claire Trevor School of the Arts with a variety of questions, ranging from academic course planning and registration, to petitioning for courses and the audition process. Additionally, by appointment, the Arts PAAs give prospective Claire Trevor School of the Arts applicants tours of the School during the regular academic year.

The Claire Trevor School of the Arts counselors and PAAs are available for 30-minute appointments and walk-ins, Monday-Friday, Weeks 1-10 throughout the academic year. For more information, or to schedule an appointment, click here.

Scheduled appointments are 30 minutes in length and are only with the Academic Counselors. Scheduled appointments are recommended for students who have questions that may take longer than 15 minutes to discuss (i.e. long term course planning, study abroad options, transfer course review, probation, withdrawal, etc.).

Same day walk-in appointments will still be available during regular office hours (M-F, 9AM – 12PM and 1 – 4 PM), depending on the availability of advising staff. It is strongly recommended that you arrive at least 30 minutes before the office closes.
