In it’s 18th year, the Promoting Academic Skills and Success Program (PASS) is a first-year, academic support program designed to benefit students during their transition from high school to college. Students are recommended by the Office of Admissions and acceptance to Eastern Michigan University is contingent based on the student’s documented agreement to participate with the PASS Program.
