Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS)

What is a Peer Assisted Study Session (PASS)?

Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) are weekly review sessions that are available to students in historically challenging courses. Sessions are informal, fun and interactive! They are designed to help students succeed by improving understanding of course material, developing study strategies, and preparing for tests and exams.


Why should I attend?

Students who attend PASS regularly gain a better understanding of course content, earn better grades and learn useful study strategies for other courses. PASS sessions provide students with an opportunity to:

  •        Ask questions;
  •        Compare lecture notes;
  •        Discuss course content;
  •        Interact with other students;
  •        Solve practice problems; and
  •        Study smarter.
What is a PASS leader?

PASS sessions are led by trained peer facilitators, known as PASS leaders. These are students who have already taken and earned an A in the class. They attend every class all over again, then go over the difficult concepts and help new students in an interactive learning environment.


The PASS Leader will provide review sessions every week at times that best fit students' schedules. You can attend as many sessions as you want. No registration is required.
