Advisor and Peer Mentors

The Nontraditional Student Center strives to bring our services to where our students are. With that goal in mind, we provide many options for students to meet with one of our peer mentors or advisors.

 Nontraditional Student Center Advisor

The Nontraditional Student Center Advisor will help with the areas below:

  • Identifying your strengths as an individual, and coach you to develop those strengths as a student to help you be successful at WSU.
  • Applying to Weber State University -- "I think I am ready for college! What do I do first?"
  • Identifying barriers to your college success -- "What would prevent me from graduating on time? How can I address these barriers?"
  • Understanding WSU English and Math placement – “ How do I know what Math to take?"
  • Academic planning during your first and second academic years -- "Should I go to school as a full-time or part-time student? Maybe 20 credits in a semester is too much at once?"
  • Navigating academic, financial aid and university petition processes -- "I am in trouble! What do I do now?!"
  • Issues involving other students/faculty -- "I feel a professor may not understand my situation."

Session Options:

  • One-on-one sessions through drop-in visits during office hours, or scheduled appointments at both campuses. 
    Call 801-626-7794  |  See Office Hours
     
  • In small group sessions focusing on a particular area of interest (i.e. scholarships, FAFSA help, campus involvement).
