What is PASS?
The PASS Program (Personal & Academic Support Services) is a federally funded TRIO Student Support Services Program (SSS), funded by the U.S. Department of Education, that was established to support first-generation, low-income and/or disabled students. The PASS Program supports program participants on their educational journey to graduate/earn a certificate and/or transfer to a four-year university. The PASS Program provides Rio Hondo College students with educational advisement, financial aid information and support, specialized tutoring, and social, cultural and educational field trips.
The Student Support Services Program (SSS) mission is to provide college advisement and services in a compassionate, encouraging and supportive manner to a diverse group of Rio Hondo College students, such that all students will be aware of and eligible to transfer into a four year university.
As a result of participation in the RHC SSS Program:
- Students will be able to demonstrate an understanding of the IGETC transfer options
- Students will be able to navigate the college system
