Get your degree faster. Adult students wanting to advance more quickly toward their degree can do so with University College's Accelerated Track program, or ACTRAC.
Eligible University College students may enroll in courses that carry the ACTRAC option (noted in the Course Listings). By completing additional course work prescribed by the instructor, students earn 4 credits for each ACTRAC course rather than the usual 3 credits. By taking ACTRAC courses, students can reduce the total number of courses they must take before they graduate.
To qualify, students must be admitted to a University College undergraduate degree program, have successfully completed at least 12 credits, completed a college-level English composition course with a grade of B or better, have a 3.0 minimum GPA, and written approval from a University College advisor. When approved, students register and pay for four credits for each ACTRAC course. The ACTRAC option must be chosen at the beginning of the semester, and is not available to Washington University day students.
The "extra credit" work will be specified by the instructor, and will normally include extra reading, writing, and research.
To see the current selection of ACTRAC courses, click the Courses and Registration link in the header, look under "Other Filters" and select "ACTRAC Only" and click the Search button to the right of the page. More detailed information about ACTRAC is available in the University College office. Or call your University College advisor, (314) 935-6777.
