University Honors Program Peer Advisor Application

This is the University Honors Program Peer Advisor Application for Summer Orientation.

If you are currently in Good Standing in the University of Louisville Honors Program, and you are interested in helping advise entering Honors students during Summer Orientation, you should apply to become an Honors Peer Advisor!  In Honors, our Peer Advisors work closely with the our advising staff and administrators to assist incoming Honors first-year students with course selection and registration during Orientation. Additionally, Honors Peer Advisors promote and discuss the University Honors Program to new students and their family members.  While the advising portion of this job concludes at the end of Freshman Orientation in July, Honors Peer Advisors are also expected to continue to serve as Honors Student Success Ambassadors for the duration of the upcoming academic year.  In the Fall semester, Honors SSA's assist with Honors first-year seminar instruction, meet individually with their first-year mentees, and provide overall support and mentoring to these students throughout the rest of the academic year.  For more information about the role of Student Success Ambassador and the application process, please visit this website.

Those selected to become Honors Peer Advisors will need to be available for training and all Summer Orientation sessions. Training will take place in May while Orientation sessions will run through early July. If you are planning on taking summer courses, pursuing Summer Research programs, or any other summer plans, please keep the Orientation schedule in mind when applying. Honors Peer Advisors are typically paid $10/hour and work between 15-20 hours weekly.

If you are interested in applying to become an Honors Peer Advisor, please complete and submit the following application no later than 4:00 PM EST on Wednesday, January 19, 2022.
