February 14, 2019 – Cypress, CA – Trident University International (Trident) has announced the launch of FastracDC, a new dual credit option that allows qualified undergraduate students to reduce the number of classes needed to complete an online masters degree.

Available in the Glenn R. Jones College of Business and College of Health and Human Services, FastracDC gives undergraduate students the ability to replace three bachelors level courses with comparable masters level courses. The dual credit option is offered to students pursuing a Bachelors degree in Human Resource Management (BSHRM), Business Administration (BSBA), Leadership (BSL), and Health Administration (BSHA).

Fastrac not only shortens the time to completing a masters degree for bachelors students, it also helps make their education more affordable.

By providing this streamlined option to complete a masters degree, we make it easier for our students to achieve their goals sooner, and in a more affordable way.Dr. Mihaela Tanasescu, Provost and Chief Academic Officer

FastracDC is one of the multiple ways Trident has improved the student experience this year. Last month the University announced two other new initiatives: Fastrac12, a quicker path to graduation in selected masters programs, and Fastrac10, a 10-month track available for the Master of Arts in Education (MAED) program.
