Peer Academic Advisors

We’re all in this together! Peer Academic Advisors (PAAs) are paid and trained student advisors and leaders who want to give back to the honors community by helping current Campuswide Honors students with honors and academic needs. They act as mentors, help students plan out their courses through graduation, advise about classes and majors, and inform students about UCI resources.

PAAs are also part of the honors leadership team, including the Campuswide Honors Student Council (CHSC) and the Honors Resident Advisors (RAs). Together, the Honors leaders plan community events, coordinate honors volunteer activities, and address honors academic concerns.

Honors sophomores and juniors in good standing are eligible to apply for this position. After graduating from UCI, Honors PAAs have gone on to work in student affairs, become doctors, writers, politicians, computer programmers, professors, etc. This is a great way for active leaders who are excited about the honors classes and community to continue to develop their leadership skills.
