Palmer Academic Student Success (PASS) program

Tutorials and Study Strategy Sessions

The Palmer Academic Student Success (PASS) program is a free study strategy service available to all DC students on the Main, West and Florida Campuses. We understand that the life of a Palmer student is fast-paced and often challenging. PASS study leaders are successful upper trimester students who have the skills, ability, and desire to facilitate the learning and academic successes of their peers.

Lecture and Lab Study Strategy Sessions

On a weekly basis, PASS offers peer tutoring in the form of lecture and lab study strategy sessions. Reviewing important course material, offering mock exams and quiz questions are examples of how peer tutors help you prepare for testing situations.

PASS Study Strategy Schedule (Main Campus)

This printable schedule will allow you to plan your study strategy for the week. Peer tutoring schedules for the West and Florida Campuses are available in the Office of Student Services.

On the Main Campus, lab study strategy sessions are designed to give you an additional opportunity to view lab materials and participate in review sessions and mock practical exams. Regular participation can help you conquer your nerves and align you for success in lab. To provide you the best experience possible, lab attendance is limited, and you must sign-up in advance.

PASS Lab Registration Form (Main Campus)

The PASS lab registration form allows you to sign up for your preferred lab study strategy session on a weekly basis. Registration forms will be processed Monday through Friday in the order they are received. You will receive a reminder email with your lab time on Friday afternoon.

Study Strategy Self-Help Resources


If you are currently taking Gross I, Gross II, or Spinal Anatomy, PASS lab assistants are available during selective open lab hours to answer your lab-related questions and help facilitate your learning.

Drop-In Tutoring

Drop-in tutors are available in West Hall 128E during select hours. The schedule is available on the PASS Brightspace page and posted outside of the tutoring room door.
