PAL Program

The PAL (Peer-Assisted Learning) program is a modified supplemental instruction support program for first year, historically difficult, or mandatory "gatekeeper" courses at Sheridan.

How it Works

PAL programming provides weekly study hall sessions for students based on course content already taught by the course’s professor.  PAL Leaders review notes, discuss readings, develop study skills and help prepare for tests and assignments. Sessions are interactive and provide the opportunity to ask questions and check understanding.

PAL Leaders are current Sheridan students recommended by faculty, who have previously completed the course with a grade of 76% or higher.
