Peer Academic Advisors (PAA) are an essential part of the Social Sciences Undergraduate Student Affairs Office. As current undergraduate students, they are a valuable resource to share their experiences and provide academic advising from a student's perspective. PAAs answer questions regarding degree/progress checks, class schedules, general education, school, major, and minor requirements, change of major and much more. They provide assistance and resources to ensure that undergraduate students are able to make the most of their UCI experience!
