Peer Advising

In addition to the advising you receive from the professional academic advisors, the Elliott School offers supplemental advising from Peer Advisors. Peer Advisors are students like you, who can provide useful insight into many aspects of academic life at the Elliott School and GW. Offering unique guidance based on special training and personal experiences, Peer Advisors can help you:

  • Navigate your way through the University
  • Learn and understand the curriculum
  • Complete your Four Year Plan assignment
  • Determine which courses and professors may be of particular interest to you
  • Complete Elliott School forms and applications
  • Find more information on internships and studying abroad

In addition to discussing your academic concerns, please consider asking peer advisors questions like these:

  • What was the most beneficial advice you received about college?
  • What scared you most about starting college? How did you cope?
  • Did you make any big mistakes your freshman year? What would you do differently?
  • What was the best thing that happened to you freshman year?
  • What's the best way to make close friends?
