Academic Success

Peer Assisted Learning (PAL)

The mission of Peer Assisted Learning (formally Supplemental Instruction or SI) is to improve student retention and academic achievement by organizing dynamic and interactive peer-facilitated study sessions paired with traditionally difficult courses. The PAL program at Texas A&M University-Kingsville provides learning tools to improve understanding of subject content, foster critical thinking and to encourage lifelong learning and professional student success. 

The Center for Student Success offers Tutoring and PAL support services designed to help students achieve academic success.

Tutoring assists students by providing one-on-one, need-specific academic help. Tutoring sessions, by appointment, are recommended although walk-in requests are available.

Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) assists students by providing regularly scheduled, out-of-class study sessions. PAL sessions are open to all class members and welcome all students in the course. Sessions focus on content and learning/study skills strategies. Consult with "PALs" in your class to find out when sessions are offered.
