What is Fast Track/On Track?

Fast Track/On Track 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 22 students. Reading labs use My Foundations Lab and Math labs use ALEKS, with both technologies supported by tutors. English Fast Track/On Track is facilitated by tutors in a traditional classroom method. Forty-two total hours are spent in each lab over the three-week session.
