Peer-Assisted Learning (PAL) Groups

Peer-Assisted Learning (PAL) Groups are study groups that are facilitated by a peer tutor who has successfully completed the course. Tutors are outstanding undergraduate students recommended by SUU faculty. They bring experience, expertise, and enthusiasm to group discussions. 

  • Deepen your understanding of course material.
  • Practice problems with peers and with the guidance of a tutor.
  • Get study and test-taking tips.
  • Bring your books, notes, questions, and sense of humor.
  • Attendance is flexible.
  • FREE! Just show up.


Two types of groups:
Weekly Groups - Sessions are held weekly.
Exam Review Groups - Sessions are concentrated to the week leading up to each exam.
