To apply for one of our paid Transfer and Reentry Peer Advisor positions complete the online application.  Note that we typically hire new Peer Advisors in the winter quarter, so incoming peer staff can attend the spring training course.  However, students are welcome to submit an application throughout the year.

Summer 2024 update: The TRC is hiring two Peer Advisors for the 2024-2025 school year.  Application deadline is July 17, 2024 at 11:59pm.  To apply, complete the online application.  You will also be asked to submit a copy of your resume.

The TRC Peer Advisors strive to be a first point of contact for Transfer and Reentry students and to assist them in navigating the University and providing referrals when appropriate, planning and facilitating various events each quarter, and support in running the center on a day-to-day basis.
