Peer Advisors

 If you have good oral and written communication skills, an outgoing personality, a desire to help others, a strong work ethic, and the ability to work well under pressure, becoming a USCL Peer Advisor (also known as a P.A.L.) could be part of your future.

More About Us

Peer Advisors are an important part of the USCL campus. They participate in a variety of campus activities, including Registration, Orientation, and other events. Becoming a Peer Advisor is a great way to meet new friends, visit new places, and gain new experiences.

Peer Advisors receive a $500.00 tuition stipend for Fall and $500.00 for Spring. Each PAL will attend the Southern Region Orientation Workshop (SROW) and receive extensive leadership training through a 16 week course in the Spring. PALS must attend every orientation session held over the summer.

If you are interested in becoming a Peer Advisor, you must first complete a Peer Advisor Application [pdf]. You can also pick up an application in the Office of Student Life in Starr Hall 106. Applicants must be currently enrolled at USCL and must have completed at least 12 semester hours by the end of the Fall semester. Applicants must have a cumulative GPA of 3.0. Applications for Fall 2019 are due by December 10, 2019.
