Students as Partners


What is PASS?

PASS stands for Peer Assisted Study Sessions. It consists of weekly one-hour, voluntary group study sessions led by “PASS Leaders”, students who excelled in the same course in the past and also understand the struggles typically faced by students enrolled in the course. In PASS, students work together in a relaxed and supportive learning environment to consolidate understanding, reinforce key concepts and develop effective study strategies.
