PASS Instructor collaborates with the PASS Ambassador

Promoting Academic Student Success

The purpose of Promoting Academic Student Success (PASS 0900) is to assist students who have been placed on academic probation during their freshmen year or who are returning from academic suspension. Participation in the PASS course is mandatory for freshmen on probation and students who successfully appeal an academic suspension. The course is recommended also for students returning from suspension or referred to the program by their advisor or a faculty member.  The PASS Program is designed as an academic-strengthening program to provide students with the academic and personal support needed for success in college.
