About Peer Assisted Learning Program (PAL)

About the PAL Program

Peer-Assisted Learning (PAL) is a curricular structure that encourages cross-year support among students in science and math gateway courses. The PAL program is housed in the Center for Science and Math Success.

PAL encourages students to learn co-operatively under the guidance of trained students, called PAL Facilitators, who have been very successful in the same course they facilitate, and have been highly trained in group facilitation and pedagogy.

COVID-19 Update: PAL classes are treated the same as all other classes. For Fall 2021, about half of PAL classes will be in person and about half will be held online. Office hours and review sessions are still open to all students who wish to receive help, even those who are not in a PAL. Email lundmark@csus.edu with questions. The No B.S. Squad (Barriers to Success) has prepared handouts on student well-being during this crisis; email pal@csus.edu for access.
