Welcome to Personalized Accelerated Learning (PAL)

About the PAL Program 

  • The Personalized Accelerated Learning (PAL) Program provides the opportunity to complete classes at an accelerated pace, via PAL Cohorts. 
  • A PAL Cohort consists of two, accelerated, 8 week classes that take place back-to-back in one 16 week semester.  
  • The two classes in a PAL Cohort must be completed in the same semester. They cannot be taken separately. There are no exceptions to this rule.
  • PAL cohorts are available in the Fall & Spring Semesters, offering morning, mid-day, and evening classes. 
  • Before you can register for a PAL cohort, you will need to complete a short online PAL Orientation. 
Note: If you're a Veteran, please check with Veteran's Affairs​ (Bldg. X9, Phone 661-362-3469) to see how PAL might affect your benefits!​​
