What’s it All About?


The FastTracks program is designed to provide a college education at a reduced cost to you.

• The program is accelerated, focused and affordable. When you enroll, you will be placed only in the classes you need.

• Because you will be on a narrow pathway, you won’t waste time or money taking classes that won’t count towards your degree.

• You’ll be enrolled at both Metropolitan Community College and Northwest Missouri State University at the same time, so you will receive all of the benefits of both institutions for one low price.
