What is P.A.S.S?

Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) is an academic assistance program, where students work together to reinforce key concepts and develop effective study strategies.

Each session incorporates how to learn and what to learn. These sessions are not group tutoring sessions, but instead group study sessions guided by a trained tutor who is also taking the course with you. Whether you are a top performer or could use some improvement, you will benefit from the skills and understanding gained from attending PASS.

The most obvious result of PASS is that the students, who attend regularly, consistently earn a higher grade and withdraw less often than those who do not attend.
