Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) are a student-facilitated academic support program designed to assist graduate students in selected courses. Sessions are conducted by graduate student PASS leaders, who have successfully completed the course for which they are providing support. PASS leaders work with the professors of those courses to promote an integrated experience of content and learning strategies for student participants.

Students attending PASS will work with leaders to:

  • Review course notes
  • Gain a better understanding of course concepts
  • Be able to apply concepts to various course scenarios
  • Work on practice problems
  • Develop and apply ways to improve learning and study skills

Sessions are free, voluntary and available to students who are enrolled in those particular courses. Participants will be able to choose to attend paired or small group sessions. PASS are held throughout the week and located in the Graduate Student Lounge, located on the second floor of the Sykes College of Business. PASS are offered for the following courses:

  • ACC 500, 501, 610
  • ECO 640
  • EMBA 820
  • FIN 500, 611
  • QMB 500, 612
