Program for Academic and Social Success

The Program forAcademic and Social Success (PASS) is a fee based program that provides a comprehensive set of services specifically designed to support students with learning disabilities and attention deficit disorders in the college mainstream. The program promotes the development of skills which enhance a student’s ability to undertake successful college-level work and engage in lifelong learning.

In order to participate in PASS, a student must also be admitted to Bethany College. In addition to the application, high school transcript, recommendations, and SAT or ACT scores, the student must submit complete documentation of the learning disability. Complete documentation consists of a current psycho-educational evaluation (within 3 years) and it must include recommendations for any adaptive devices, assistive services, etc. All candidates applying for PASS should schedule an interview with the PASS coordinator prior to the beginning of the school year. Interviews can be scheduled by the Center for Enrollment.

Students with documented disabilities are offered accommodations on a case by case basis in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Accommodations are provided at no additional cost.
