The Program to Acclimate Students to Scholastics (PASS) is designed to serve as a Summer Intensive Program to ease the transition from high school into University life for those students who have been selected to participate. The students eligible must be granted regular admission status to Tarleton State University and be willing to attend the Summer II 2013 semester,  Texan Orientation, & Duck Camp.  PASS provides funding for a participant to enroll in a for-credit college class, room & board and registration for Duck Camp as recommended by the PASS selection committee.  Textbooks will be provided as part of the PASS Program and they will have to be returned to Student Success Programs at the conclusion of the Summer session.  For Fall 2013, the PASS participants must be eligible for full admission to Tarleton State University and be willing to enroll in the PASS Learning Community to include the DGS 101 - University Seminar I course.  Priority consideration will be given to those students who:

  • Have  regular admission status;
  • Complete the FAFSA and qualify for Pell grant support;
  • Are first-generation students, for whom neither parent or legal guardian has graduated from a 4-year college or university; and
  • Have not enrolled in college level course work since high school graduation.
