Students are selected through an application and interview process. Applications are available in the Peer Advising Office, 1343 East Hall.

Students are required to work 3-4 hours per week as peer advisors in the Undergraduate Office, as well as to attend a weekly, two-hour class on Wednesdays from 4:00-6:00. A required training in peer facilitation and the psychology concentration is scheduled on the first Sunday after classes begin, which is continued in a required extended class period on the second Wednesday after classes begin. Participation in class discussion and willingness to actively engage in providing and receiving feedback on advising work is of primary importance for this course.

The course is limited to about 20 students in order to promote discussion, training, interactive experiential learning, and supervision of the practicum.
