Student Academic Support Services

At Palmer College of Chiropractic, we’re committed to your success. We provide all students the necessary academic support and opportunities for enhanced learning. We understand that as a busy student, you may require assistance outside the classroom to achieve your best level of performance. With that in mind, we developed an array of academic services to help meet your educational goals.

We’re Here to Help

Palmer Academic Support (PASS) Peer Tutors
We understand that the life of a student is fast-paced and often challenging, which is why we offer weekly peer tutoring in the form of lecture and lab study sessions. Our peer tutors help you prepare for exams by reviewing important course material, offering mock exams, and quiz questions.

Open Lab/PASS Lab Tutors
PASS Lab Tutors provide Palmer students supplemental group lab sessions. PASS Lab Tutors review not only the content area of the lab portion of the course, but also present learning strategies, and test preparation techniques.

Drop-in Tutors
PASS Drop-In Tutors help students in small groups or individually. PASS Drop-In Tutors not only assist with the understanding of class materials, but also assist students in strengthening academic memory retention, comprehending textbooks, organizing assignments, and improving general learning and study skills.
