WHAT IS FAST TRACK™?
CTU Fast Track™ is a series of mini modules designed to test your knowledge of key course objectives. By passing Fast Track™ exams, you gain the opportunity to earn college credit for what you already know and earn your degree faster.
WHAT CAN FAST TRACK™ DO FOR YOU?
By passing a CTU Fast Track™ test you can save up to 30% on time and money by earning college credits for what you already know.
HOW DO FAST TRACK™ TESTS WORK?
Sign up for a Fast Track™ exam through your admissions advisor. Once the test opens, you’ll have a period of time to complete the assessment online. If you earn a 70% pass rate, you receive proficiency credit and the course is removed from your schedule.
If you score below a 70%, the course remains on your schedule as planned, but there is no penalty to your grade point average or academic standing. You cannot re-take a Fast Track™ test that you have attempted and not passed, however you can take multiple Fast Track™ tests while enrolled at CTU. Watch a short video about Fast Track™.
