PASSPORT Program

Program for Academic Support Services Providing Opportunities to Remarkable and Talented Students

The mission of the PASSPORT Program is to provide support for higher education and academic success to students matriculated at Kean University.  Freshmen applicants who do not fully meet University admission requirements, but show a potential to succeed are admitted by the Undergraduate Admissions Office into the PASSPORT Program. Students admitted into the PASSPORT Program are served for their first two years of college study before they are integrated into general student population services. 

PASSPORT Counselor Internship Experience

The Counselor Education Department at Kean University has partnered with PASSPORT to provide counseling support to our students. Students are required to meet with counselor interns on an individual bases as well as attend small group roundtables, workshops, and special meetings.

Personal and Social Counseling

Although the University has a counseling center on campus, we find it critical to offer assistance to our students by completing the following:

  • Providing an assessment program to identify student needs
  • Offering appropriate services and referrals based on student needs
  • Providing individual and group counseling in the area of personal and interpersonal relationships.
  • Providing structured counseling services for personal, academic, and professional development
  • Maintaining cooperative relationships with Human Relations and Counseling Center and Health Services

The goals in this area are:

  • Respond to the academic and non-academic needs of individual students.
  • Develop individual Academic Development Plans for students, which assists in meeting their major or career aspirations
  • Develop curricula which ensures that students complete their developmental requirements within their first three semesters and their General Education requirements within the first four semesters
  • Provide Advisors with data about students’ academic needs, classroom performance, aspirations, and developmental concerns
  • Develop interventions associated with academic departments and Deans

Kean University wants their graduates to be employed after graduation. Career Counseling is one of the vital components geared towards this initiative.

  • Maintain a cooperative relationship with the Office of Career Services and Placement
  • Assist students to make informed career decisions
  • Assist students in setting short and long term goals
  • Encourage students to declare majors by the end of their sophomore year
  • Encourage students to continue their education beyond the undergraduate level
  • Audit students’ academic progress in keeping with major department requirements
  • Write letters of recommendation for students
  • Attend annual career open houses offered by the University and EEO/EOF Program
