Academic Advising

You don’t have to leave your hall to find an advisor who can help you map your academic future at the University of Oregon. Peer advisors also visit halls regularly to offer advice on courses and share their experiences as students trained to help other students with advising questions. 

Meet With An Advisor

Your academic advisors and PathwayOregon advisors come to you in the residence halls after normal business hours so advising can happen in a place where you are comfortable at a time that works for you. 

They advise on choosing classes for next term, major exploration, declaring a major, degree requirements, course planning, policies and petitions, and can even give advice about academic success. 

Advising happens every Wednesday at the Living Learning Center, Room 115, from 6:00–8:00 p.m. (Weeks 1–10). Residence hall students can sign up for appointments online.

Drop In for Peer Advising

Look for tables set up at different residence halls throughout the term, with signs for peer advisors. 

The PeerLink peer advising program can assist you with:

  • Building a schedule for next term
  • Understanding Core Education requirements
  • Exploring major, minor, and certificate options
  • Interpreting your degree audit
  • Navigating DuckWeb
  • Connecting with helpful resources

Clark Honors College Peer Advising

Clark Honors College (CHC) peer advisors are upper class students, each with advanced knowledge in science, social science, or humanities. No need to make an appointment, all advising sessions are drop-in on a first-come, first-served basis.  

CHC peer advisors can help:

  • Provide an advanced student’s perspective of CHC courses and programs
  • Answer questions about the thesis process
  • Prepare to meet with your CHC faculty and major advisors
  • Give information about CHC clubs and activities
  • Provide insights into other aspects of campus life
