Peer Assisted Study Session (PASS)

Each group has a limited number of participants and will be lead by an ASC student staff member who has already completed the course.

Peer study group leaders integrate content and learning strategies, including review of lecture notes, textbook readings, problem-solving exercises, and pair or team-based activities that promote active learning and collaboration.

Students will commit to a specific group that will meet at the same time and place every week through the last week of classes.

Weekly participation is expected to establish group cohesion.

Students may withdraw from the group at any time allowing for their spot to be given to another student.
