Peer advising is available during various times throughout the week. Our peer advisors are highly-trained current Biology students that can help with schedule planning and general advice on course selection. Please call our office or come in to find out when a peer advisor is available.

Transfer Advisory Peers (TAPs) are experienced biology majors who transferred to UCF.  TAPs serve as an informational resource and peer mentor for new transfer students to help their transition to UCF and the Biology Department.  For more information and to connect with the TAPs, join the “TAPs n TAPees” Group Me:
