Students engage in a semester-long, peer mentor training program, and are able to volunteer (for a small stipend), or receive 1 or 3 upper-level credits. PAL coaches also have the opportunity to become a certified mentor by the Learning Assistance Service or the College Reading & Learning Association (CRLA).
If you are motivated to learn how to support UMD students in developing their time management, study process, organizational and exam skills, please see the attached flyer.
