NSCC's Peer Assisted Learning Supports (PALS) is a program where peers support peers in learning. PALS supports include:
- facilitated study groups
- drop-in sessions on specific topics
- and other peer-to-peer supports.
Visit the PALS Connect page for campus specific sessions. There are also sessions open to all students on topics such as study skills, time-management skills, and Office 365.
