Summer Fast Track Institute

Summer Fast Track Institute

The Summer Fast Track Institute is an intensive three-week program offered to help students achieve “college ready” status on the Texas Success Initiative (TSI) and register for college level courses.
The program is open to students who have received conditional admission to UHD or who have TSI scores below the college-ready threshold. Conditionally admitted students must test to determine placement within the program.
Participants receive the following incentives:

  • Weekly stipends to cover food & transportation
  • Access to online tutorials
  • Fee waiver for TSI assessment re-test
  • $300 for active participation & completion
  • An opportunity to explore the campus and make new friends prior to the start of classes
  • A free “College Success Kit” and UHD backpack
  • An opportunity to connect with the academic colleges to discuss major opportunities
