PASS (Peer Assisted Study Sessions) is modelled after the Supplemental Instruction program created at the University of Missouri, which is a free academic support program for high-risk courses rather than targeting high-risk students

  • Non-remedial approach to learning for historically difficult courses which have been challenging for ALL students
  • Utilizes peer-led group study approach to help students succeed
  • Facilitated by a PASS Leader, who is a current student who had already successfully completed the course

Benefits of PASS:

  • great way to connect with other students studying the same course
  • guaranteed weekly study time, helps reinforce learning and retention of information
  • maximize understanding of the subject, in a casual and relaxed environment
  • learn and integrate study tools and successful exam techniques, specific to that course
