What are PAL Sessions (PALS)?

Peer-Assisted Learning Sessions (PALS) are weekly drop-in sessions that are led by peer tutors. During each session, a specific topic is reviewed that is related to current material for a particular course and students have the opportunity to ask questions and work on examples/problems together. 

Which courses offer PALS and how do I sign-up?

Except for Math, all PAL Sessions are drop-in, so no prior registration is required. However, seating is limited and all spaces are first come, first served.

Math PAL sessions are structured differently

  • Weekly sign ups are needed, you will receive an email detailing the topics covered.
  • We strongly encourage you to come on time.
  • Seating is limited and the cap is stated in the sign up email

See the list of course offerings and the schedule below.
