FastTrack is a week-long, intensive program designed especially for incoming, first-year students giving them an early start in their math and science courses. All STEMCats students will particpate in FastTrack.
Now in its fourth year, FastTrack is a residential academic program designed to prepare first-year students for rigorous undergraduate course work before the start of the fall semester.
FastTrack students also have the opportunity to move in early, giving them a head start on building friendships and connections, as well as getting familiar with campus, Lexington and the community.
There is also time set aside for visiting labs, partaking in special events and having plenty of fun.
When the fall semester does finally kick in, FastTrack students are well-prepared for success, not only for those first few weeks of college, but for their entire academic careers at UK.
Participation in the FastTrack program allows you to move in your residence hall early, experience college-level coursework prior to the start of the semester, discover on-campus resources and activities, while developing relationships with fellow, first-year students.
Participants in programs such as this have achieved a significantly higher GPA than those who do not participate.
