Peer Advisor Program

Peer Advisor Program

Peer Advisors assist students who have been notified by the Office of Academic Integrity & Student Conduct for an alleged policy violation, and they promote awareness and provide education about the Student Conduct and Academic Integrity processes to students and campus partners.

Schedule a Meeting with a Peer Advisor!

Unsure how to respond to your Notification Letter? Peer Advisors can help! The Peer Advisor’s role is to help, assist, and support the student. They do not act as a spokesperson, advocate, or defense counsel for the student.

Schedule a meeting here.

Students can schedule a meeting with an Academic Integrity & Student Conduct Peer Advisor upon receiving a Notification Letter from the Office of Academic Integrity & Student Conduct. During this meeting, the Peer Advisor may assist with the following:

  • Explain the Notification Letter

  • Explain the standard of evidence used in investigations
  • Provide an overview of the possible sanction options
  • Explain the Student Conduct Review Board process (if applicable)
  • Explain the Academic Integrity Review Board process (if applicable)
  • Explaining the appeals process (if applicable)
  • Inform the student of campus resources to help them navigate the conduct process

If you have any general questions about the Peer Advisor meetings or the Peer Advisor role, please email us at conduct@uci.edu.
