Eastern's innovative FastPass program saves you time, money, and stress. It works like this: Residential students in our traditional undergraduate programs can receive two, tuition-free, online summer classes for each year of study at Eastern University. That’s right. Tuition = $0.00. No kidding. You pay only for books and the usual summer term fee. Here are 3 options we think you’ll love.
To take full advantage of this option, you’ll have to take 18 credits (6 classes) in each of five semesters and 19 credits in one semester, and you’ll also need to take 6 credits (2 classes) online during each of your two intervening summer sessions. Add it all up … and that’s 121 credits. Graduation in just three years. The path to graduation can be easier and perhaps a little faster if you bring in prior credit from AP tests or from dual enrollment programs.
Students with Jobs: Going to school while holding down a job can be a challenge. The typical student takes 15 credits (5 classes) in a semester and many take 18 credits (6 classes). Eastern University FastPass™ allows you to postpone a few classes into the summer, creating an easier fall and spring term of just 12 to 13 credits followed by a light summer of only 6 online credits.
Students with Vigorous Extracurricular Activities: Rewarding experiences like athletics, drama, music, and student government contribute to a well-rounded education but can also be quite time-consuming. Eastern University FastPass™ to the rescue! You can take a lighter load and catch up in the summer.
Many Eastern students choose to pursue 2 different majors at the same time … to “double major.” Eastern University FastPass™ makes it easier to do this because, in the 3 summers between your 4 academic years, you can take 18 extra credits for $0 tuition. You pay for college once but get two different academic qualifications. The investment creates a broad and flexible foundation for your future!
Students in our traditional undergraduate programs, who reside on campus and maintain satisfactory academic progress, can take advantage of this program. It is open to students in all majors in all colleges, including the Templeton Honors College. (Note: While all majors qualify for free online summer classes, talk to your admissions counselor about whether your major allows you to graduate in 3 years.)
We didn’t forget you. Commuter students who carry a full-time EU traditional undergraduate course load during the academic year, but do not pay for room and board, will receive significant discounts on these summer classes (almost 50%!) We call it EU FastPass Lite. View cost per credit (look for Summer Online, Commuter FastPass Lite.)
