Get on the Fast Track

Lone Star College-Montgomery is now offering 8-week Fast Track semesters. The Fast Track program splits the traditional 16-week semester into two, shorter 8-week semesters. Students enrolled in the program full time – 6 credit hours– can still qualify for financial aid.

Why Take 8-Week Semesters?

Research shows that students are more successful in shortened semesters. The increase of student success in 8-week semesters can be attributed with student’s ability to prioritize, complete, capitalize, and transfer.
  • Prioritize: Focus on fewer classes at a time.
  • Complete: Take classes faster to stay on track to graduate.
  • Capitalize: More time to focus on difficult subjects.
  • Transfer: Start at a 4-year university sooner.
