Peer Assisted Student Success

What is PASS?

Peer Assisted Student Success (PASS) is McLennan Community College's current Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP). It is a five-year, research-based plan that aims to improve academic outcomes for first-time-in-college (FTIC) students through the development and implementation of peer-led academic and social support systems.


Primary Goals of PASS

Goal 1: To provide FTIC students with peer-led academic support


  • Standardize training and evaluation of tutors, mentors, and supplemental instruction leaders
  • Integrate and promote peer-led academic support programs campus-wide

Goal 2: Bolster peer social support for FTIC students


  • Foster relationships among students and mentors in Learning Framework sections
  • Integrate and promote peer social support programs
