    The FASTrack Approach

    Foundations for Academic Success Track (FASTrack) is a first-year learning community that helps students make a successful transition from high school to college. FASTrack students benefit from smaller and enhanced classes, individualized advising and mentoring, and a community of supportive peers. FASTrack students earn higher GPAs, go on academic probation less often, and return for the sophomore year at higher rates than their peers.

    “What could be better than a program that welcomes, challenges, and supports student success? FASTrack’s targeted approach turns first-year students into seniors.”
    —Dr. Randy L. Swing, Executive Director of the Association for Institutional Research.
