FastTrack is a three-week learning lab to help you strengthen your academic and study skills through a combination of web-based and professional tutor-guided activities. You will also learn about college resources to help you be more successful in your academic career.

Eligible students may enroll in either Math or Integrated Reading & Writing (IRW). 

FastTrack is free to students who have:

  • Not started their class sequence within their eligible subject,
  • And who have at least one score that falls within the following ranges: 
Subject FastTrack Qualifying Score
IRW (Integrated Reading and Writing)

 Accuplacer Writing: 1- 5

SAT ERWS: Up to 440 (if SAT ERWS was used for English placement) 

Math ALEKS PPL: 11 - 29


After taking FastTrack you will retake the corresponding college placement test. A higher assessment score may allow you to bypass ONE of the following required courses: IRW 097, 098, 099 or MA 097, 098, 099 -- allowing you to move directly into the related college-level course. Moving directly into a college-level course will save you between $600 (in-district) and $1,200 (out-of-district) in tuition, fees, and books.

FastTrack Summer 2020 registration is now closed. More information about FastTrack Summer 2021 coming!

When asked "What part of the FastTrack program did you enjoy most?" One student said:

"I feel very confident about starting college in the fall, and that I am going to succeed in a college setting. This is a really good summer college prep lab. Plus I'm now connected with the right people and now know someone to go to when I have problems or need help with anything. Most incoming freshmen would benefit from taking this course, I highly recommended it."
