FastTrack Program

Benefits

The FastTrack program is FREE to qualifying students. Students will SAVE TIME AND $600 by passing their developmental education course and moving into credit-bearing courses.

What is FastTrack?

FastTrack is an intensive three-week, 14-hour per week learning lab in which students gain academic skills through a combination of web-based and professional tutor-guided activities. Each lab has an enrollment capacity of 24 students. Reading labs use My Foundations Lab, English labs use My Writing Lab and Math labs use ALEKS, with both technologies supported by tutors. Forty-two total hours are spent in each lab over the three-week session.

Purpose

The purpose of the FastTrack program is to give developmental students an opportunity to accelerate skill building, so they are able to bypass developmental course work and move directly into college-level courses.
