Peer Advisors are undergraduate students thoroughly trained and able to assist their peers in identifying campus resources, navigating SiS, and providing the kind of UMass Lowell (UML) process hacks that only a fellow student can provide.

Among other skills, Peer Advisors can assist with:

  • ScheduleBuilder
  • SiS
  • Advisement Reports
  • Class Search
  • Identifying campus offices for process-related questions
  • General help with understanding requirements, such as Breadth of Knowledge, and policies, such as Withdrawal deadlines.
