The Program for Academic Support Services (PASS) is a federal TRIO/Student Support Services Program funded by the U.S. Department of Education.  It is designed to increase the retention, graduation and transfer rates of students who are low-income and/or the first in their family to go to college.  Programs and services offered to insure student success include the following:

  • Academic, Transfer, Financial Aid and Career counseling
  • Tutoring and academic preparation resources
  • Financial literacy and understanding
  • Skill development workshops
  • Four-year college field trips
  • Cultural and Educational activities
  • Referral to a variety of other campus services

The PASS staff offers a friendly and supportive environment that includes frequent contacts and follow-up with participants throughout their academic journey.  The staff includes a director, counselors, administrative clerk, graduate intern, tutors and student assistants. The PASS staff provides individualized and personal guidance to each participant.

If you are committed to getting an Associate degree and/or transferring to get your Bachelor's degree, and you need academic support to get you there, contact the PASS office.  Visit us in D-112 or call us at (626) 585-7815.
