Please note, before you can register for a PAL cohort, you will need to complete the online PAL Orientation. Once you’ve completed the orientation, you will receive a "PAL flag" on your student account, which will allow you to register for PAL classes. You will be notified by email (please check your student email) when you are flagged.

About the PAL Program
  • Back-to-back, short-term classes in math.
  • A PAL cohort consists of two 8 week classes that take place back-to-back in one 16 week semester. 
  • Morning, mid-day, and evening classes. Available in Fall and Spring semesters.
  • Students must complete the online PAL orientation before they can register for PAL cohorts (linked classes).
  • PAL classes cannot be taken separately. You must take all classes in the cohort. Sorry, but there are no exceptions.
  • Note: If you're a Veteran, please check with Veteran's Affairs to see how PAL will affect your benefits!

For more information, see the Math Placement Chart​* 

 *Please consult with a program advisor or counselor if you are unsure which PAL course to take based on your educational goals

The Spring PAL Cohort schedule will be available soon.
