UW-L 'FastTrack' students move in early


LA CROSSE, WI (WXOW)—37 UW-La Crosse freshmen moved in a week early for the ‘FastTrack' to degree program.

The program is designed to help students save time, and money, by learning entry level math skills in hopes of not having to take a remedial math course in college.

Students retook the University of Wisconsin math placement test on Thursday to see if they're ready to move on.

One freshman said the test was easier this time because of the extra help from fast track.

"It gives us an incredible opportunity to get to know the campus get to meet some new friends and get to know people as well as get to know some of the professors so I think we automatically get a step up. We gained an edge over some of the other incoming students," Andy Emond said.

The students found out Thursday afternoon how they did on the test and what math class they can take this school year.
