|What is FastTrack?|
FastTrack is a hybrid summer mathematics enhancement program where incoming freshmen develop their mathematical skills online for six weeks before meeting on campus for a one-week campus stay. The goal of this program is for students placed into MTH 050 or 051 to increase their skills in order to place into a higher mathematics class in the Fall of their freshman year that will be required for their academic program.
Students must APPLY and BE ACCEPTED into this program in order to participate. Only 35 will be admitted into the FastTrack cohort.
The fee for the program is $200. This fee includes course materials, instruction, housing, meals, and community activities. Upon successful completion of FastTrack, students could save more than $670, the minimum cost of taking MTH 050 or 051 during the school year.
FastTrack is designed to give incoming freshmen the opportunity to move ahead in their required mathematics coursework, providing them with a faster time to completion of their mathematics sequence. It is also designed to orient students to campus life, student services, and the La Crosse community. Students enrolled in the FastTrack program will also be able to move into their residence hall one week prior to the start of the Fall semester.
How do I apply?
Online applications will be accepted through Thursday, June 28 at noon. Click here to complete the online application!
When will I know if I am accepted?
As only a cohort of 35 students will be selected, those students who best fit the intent of FastTrack will be contacted via email by July 6, 2012.
What is the Summer 2012 timeline?
The online pre-assessment must be completed prior to the program start date of Monday, July 16. Course modules will be opened to students from July 16 to August 24. The weekly commitment to the FastTrack program will be approximately 6 hours of online study and communication. Most of the online study can be done independently at the student's convenience. Some designated weekly learning times will be required.
Students will move into their assigned residence hall on Sunday, August 26 and will participate in instructional and campus activities throughout the week.
