University of Mississippi


cwrFASTrack has a four-year history of success. Each year, our students have done remarkably well in navigating the transition to college. FASTrack students earn higher GPAs, go on probation less often, and return for the sophomore year at higher rates than their peers. FASTrack students join small, supportive groups of twenty students each. In these groups, students take three courses each semester in common, courses which satisfy University core requirements.  On their own, students will take one or two additional “non-FASTrack” courses to maintain full-time schedules. Our instructors have been carefully selected from among the finest and most dedicated teachers on our campus. Our advisors and staff are dedicated to offering students strong support and mentoring during the first year. With our guidance and with a proven network of peer and mentor support, students can make good choices throughout the first year. Indeed, students in FASTrack report finding quick friends and good study partners, even while maintaining the freedom and flexibility to be active across campus.
