What is PASS?

Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) are peer learning groups that help new students to learn how to learn, better understand unit content, and improve their results. The program is offered in selected units each session.

What are PASS sessions like?

PASS sessions are run by students, for students, and they have a relaxed and productive atmosphere. To understand what happens in PASS groups, and why it is a good idea to attend, watch the following clip of current SCU student Teena Kavasilas, sharing her PASS experience.
