Math FastTrack

Math FastTrack is a hybrid online and in person math program during the summer prior to your first year at UW-Superior for students who want to try to change their math placement. The goal of the Math FastTrack is to enhance math skills through a six-week online summer course. After completing the four-week online course, you will move into your residence hall room early (or commuters, come to campus a week early) for a multi-day campus experience. In that timeframe on campus, you will continue to refine your math skills, learn a lot about UW-Superior and how to be successful on campus, meet other new students, and retake the UW System Mathematics Placement test—all giving you the prospect of placing into a higher level math course! Only the first 40 students will be admitted into the program, which begins with the online course starting at the end of July. This program has a $250 fee to support the online course. You will be invoiced via email after you register online.

  • There are several benefits to enrolling in the summer July/August Math Fast Track:
  • Potential tuition savings of 3-6 credits ($1500-$2400)
  • Increased success in college level math
  • Fast completion of your required math courses
  • Meet other new UW-Superior students and important people on campus
  • Learn about our campus
  • Individual and group style learning experiences

TRIO Student Support Services

The goal of Student Support Services is to increase the college retention and graduation rates of its participants and facilitate the process of transition from one level of higher education to the next. SSS provides opportunities for academic development, assists students with basic college requirements, and serves to motivate students to successfully complete their postsecondary education.

New TRIO Student Support Services students will participate in Superior Jumpstart, meet with their SSS mentor (a junior or senior SSS student), connect with the SSS professional staff, and meet other SSS students while gaining important skills before the other first year students move onto campus.

This program is free to all registered TRIO Student Support Services students.

Bridge Program

The Bridge program at UW-Superior serves students who would benefit from additional academic support during their first year of enrollment at UW-Superior. The program provides additional structure and resources to participating students in order to facilitate or “bridge” their successful transition to the college academic environment.

Bridge program students are required to participate in Superior Jumpstart each fall as a way to meet new students, connect with your program manager and academic advisors, and get acclimated to campus.

This program is free to all Bridge program participants.

RISE Community Circles Participant

RISE Community Circles is a cohort program that aims to provide a support network for students during their transition into and through the first two years of their college careers. RISE provides opportunities focused on academic success and tools, social events and gatherings, cultural experiences and learning/sharing opportunities, identity exploration and support, leadership development, personal wellness, and on- and off-campus networking.  This is done through small group and one-to-one peer guidance, support, and leadership from success coaches as well as professional staff from the Department of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion – all joined by a wide variety of campus partners and student success advocates.
