Fast Track printable information

Want to improve your employability, but don’t have the funds to pay for it?

Fastrack provides adults an opportunity to earn a degree or certificate without the cost.

The Fast Track Workforce Incentive Grant is a new financial aid program that addresses workforce needs by encouraging adults to pursue a certificate, degree, or industry-recognized credential in a high demand field.


  • Individuals who are 25 years or older or who have not been enrolled in any school within the last two years may participate.
  • The grant will serve students who have not earned a bachelor’s degree and are planning to enroll part-time or full-time.
  • Individuals who make no more than $80,000 filing jointly, or no more than $40,000 per year, filing any other tax status.


High-demand occupations were identified by the Missouri Economic Research and Information Center based on projected long-term occupational projections, openings, growth and wages.

Programs approved include area in career and technical programs, healthcare, teacher education, alternative energy, computer networking, construction, Spanish, and Veterinary Technology.
