What is PASS Lane?

"PASS" or Pathways, Academic Skills, and Services targets students in ABSE, ESL, GED or other students interested in transitioning to credit classes while working on reading, writing and math skills. Students admitted to PASS Lane are given the opportunity to take specific credit level Career Technical classes and integrated non-credit ABSE or ESL classes simultaneously, regardless of if they have passed the college placement test. In addition to this, when students without a GED or a high school diploma are enrolled in PASS Lane, they may still be eligible for Financial Aid by applying through the Ability to Benefit opportunity.
