Join Our Team

Each academic year, the TRC hires a team of dedicated and enthusiastic peer advisors! (yes, that means you get paid)

Apply for one of our paid Transfer and Reentry Peer Advisor positions! Our Transfer and Reentry Peer Advisors work under the direction of professional staff in the Transfer and Reentry Center (TRC) in Dutton Hall (and in the virtual space as needed). The TRC offers an array of services, both academic and personal, so Transfer and Reentry students can attain their educational, professional and personal goals.

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 assist in running the center on a day-to-day basis.
