PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL NEVADA PASS LEADER INTERVIEWS ARE CONDUCTED IN PERSON

What exactly is Nevada PASS? The Nevada Peer-Assisted Study Session program places student leaders in traditionally difficult courses with high rates of D's, F's and withdrawals from the class. A Nevada PASS leader must be a student who has taken the class previously and earned a high grade. As a Nevada PASS Leader, you attend all class meetings for the course you are paired with. Outside of class, you are responsible for planning and facilitating four guided study session hours open to all students enrolled in the class.
