PASS (Peer Assisted Study Sessions) is a free academic support program with weekly scheduled, peer-led study sessions for academically challenging courses. PASS sessions help learners focus on effective study techniques in a relaxed learning environment outside of class. Sessions are facilitated by a PASS Leader, who is a current, upper year student who had already successfully completed the course.

Why should you attend PASS?

By attending PASS sessions you can benefit from:

  • Connecting with other students studying in the same course.
  • Having a dedicated weekly study time to help reinforce learning and retention of information.
  • Maximizing your understanding of the subject with a peer leader.
  • Learning and integrating study tools and successful exam techniques specific to your course.
  • Applying effective study strategies and organizational tools to all of your courses.

Note: PASS is offered every semester for specific courses. You must be enrolled in the course to attend PASS sessions.

Interested in becoming a PASS Leader?

PASS Leaders are current full-time Humber and Guelph-Humber students who have taken PASS-approved courses and achieved 80% or higher in them. PASS Leaders will work closely with the instructor of the course to re-attend weekly lectures, and host weekly informal but structured study sessions focused on difficult concepts covered in class.
