Welcome to P.A.S.S.

Peer-led study sessions to help students achieve academic success

What is P.A.S.S?

P.A.S.S. (Peer-Assisted Study Sessions) is an academic support program aimed at supporting historically difficult courses at Mohawk College. The P.A.S.S. Program provides weekly peer-led study sessions to help students achieve academic success in targeted, historically difficult first-year courses.

Mohawk College’s P.A.S.S Program is grounded in the principles and best practices of “Supplemental Instruction” (SI). SI is currently used at over 2,000 post-secondary institutions in 29 different countries, including 10 institutions in Ontario.

SI uses collaborative learning strategies in peer-facilitated sessions to assist students. Sessions are completely voluntary and anonymous, and they provide students with an opportunity to:

  • Better understand concepts / course material
  • Solve practice problems
  • Ask questions
  • Learn from your peers
  • Study smarter
  • Prepare for exams


The P.A.S.S. Program currently supports the following courses:

  • MATH MA101
  • MATH 10067
  • MATH 10037
  • MATH MA179
  • MATH MS171
