The first year of college can be overwhelming. The First-year Academic Support and Transition (FAST Start) program helps you transition to college by making sure you have a support system. FAST Start is open to all first-time students at Weber State.
FAST Start Program Includes
Specially Designed Courses
Courses will have all first-time students and highly trained professors who teach class in a smaller group setting instead of a large lecture.
