Peer Academic Counseling

EOP students gathered at an event at UC Berkeley

EOP pioneered the Peer Advising Program in 1974 to provide outreach activities and assist students in their transition to Cal. Today, EOP Peer Academic Counselors are current undergraduates that serve as student-to-student advisors after participating in an intensive year-round training program. This training, along with the richness of their own personal student experiences, allows them to serve as a vital resource to fellow students. Peer Academic Counselors coordinate programs and activities that provide advising, foster community, raise awareness of opportunities available to students and promote academic success.

Our Fall 2022 Peer Academic Counseling in-person drop-in advising hours will begin early September!  Please check back then for the updated schedule.
