Peer Navigators

Peer Navigators are Engineering students that can meet with you to discuss major advising tools and share more information about opportunities on campus. Peer Navigators help students to navigate the curriculum ensuring that they understand existing advising tools to take courses in the correct order and progress towards upper division coursework. You can schedule appointment and get help with planning your degree using a Semester Course Planner*

*Download a copy of the Semester Course Planner as a word file in order to edit it.
