Peer Assisted Learning

Welcome to Peer-Assisted Learning (PALs)!

No need to schedule an appointment! Just drop in and attend a group session listed below. Have a question? Call 509-963-1270 or email us at

PALs Tutoring Groups are learning communities, focused on a specific course and section, where students practice positive study habits, learn new study skills/strategies, get to know their classmates, and strengthen their understanding of class content. PALs groups meet weekly, led by a trained Group Facilitator.

Facilitators are CWU students who have successfully completed the course with a 3.3 or higher. PALs sessions will include an overview of key concepts for that week, problem-based group activities and practice problems, test preparation, and study skills/strategies.

PALs sessions typically start the second week of classes and will be in-person and/or online through Zoom.

Faculty, would you like to request to have PALs support for your courses? Fill out the Peer Assisted Learning Request form.

Please check each individual subject for specifics on current PALs locations, dates, and times.
