What does PASS do for me?

PASS will help you succeed academically in your course by offering alternative approaches to course material and using strategies that you may find difficult. You get as much out of a PASS seminar as you put in: if you collaborate, answer questions, and work with others, you will learn a lot and probably make a few friends too!

What does a PASS Leader do?

A PASS leader is a student who has recently taken the same course you have. PASS Leaders lead group discussion and create collaborative activities and worksheets that help you break down difficult concepts in your course. PASS Leaders are not TAs or instructors, and will not give you answers to tests or assignments. They will help you understand the course material as a peer and as a friend.

Where can I learn more about the program?

Ask your PASS Leaders! They are here to help you succeed and would be more than happy to answer your questions. If you would like more detailed information about the PASS program, please contact the program coordinator using the information on the right.
