Increase access to advanced college-level material, especially in the STEM fields

These online courses are semester-based and are offered on a  7.5 to 16-week format depending on the course. Courses are taught by ASU faculty members in their respective fields.

Accelerate your path to a degree

By successfully completing EFT courses, high school students will accelerate their time to degree by starting on a path to completing their degree in less than four years. Completing these classes while in high school significantly decreases the time and cost of earning a bachelor’s degree.

Receive the STEM Record of Achievement

By completing  FSE100, CSE110, MAT265 and CHM114 (with a 3.0 GPA or higher), students can receive an a STEM Record of Achievement and get started on their way to an accelerated degree in the Fulton Schools!

How it works

  1. Review the full list of course options.
  2. Register for Engineering Fast Track.
  3. Within 2-3 business days, you will receive an enrollment email with course registration instructions and your ASURITE ID.
  4. Enroll in your desired course(s)* for the upcoming semester. You must be registered for your course(s) two weeks before the course start date.
  5. Select “Pursue Credit” to take the course(s) for academic credit ($25 fee per course).
  6. Complete your course(s).
  7. If you successfully complete your course(s) a 3.0 GPA or better and would like the course added to an official college transcript, log into your account and select “Get Credit” for each course ($400 per course).
  8. Receive an official college transcript with your academic credit, which you can immediately apply towards the 3+1 program at Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering.
  9. Enroll in new courses for the next semester! *We recommend taking 1-2 courses each term. Not all courses are taught each term, so you will want to review the course schedule.
