Would you feel more comfortable speaking with a peer? We can do that!

The Peer Advisor Support at Southeast (PASS) program provides students with a supportive relationship with a peer advisor. From course guidance to practical advice to ways to connect on campus, our PASS program was designed to help students feel comfortable beginning their first day on campus by hearing from those who have recently been there.

Requirements for PASS

  • Three individual meetings with peer advisors and their academic advisor at the academic advising office:
    • First 4-Week Check
    • Mid-Term Grade Check
    • Pre-Finals Week Check
Pass Invitations will be sent during the summer to those who qualify:
  • 18-20 ACT
  • < 3.0 High School GPA

Academic Success Plan (ASP)
