Morrison University in Reno, Nevada announces its Fast Start high school-to-college transition program.

Beginning February 1, 2012, the program is open to second semester high school seniors who meet certain academic and other requirements. Morrison University selects students based on information provided in the student application, including a short essay. Students who are selected to participate will be permitted to take a total of two college-level general education courses at Morrison University at no charge.

“Our Fast Start program provides high school seniors an opportunity to earn college credits while still in high school,” says Morrison University Campus President David Heckeler. “This experience gives the participating students a valuable experience in a university environment.”

“Receiving a high school diploma and pursuing higher educational opportunities is essential to preparing our children for their futures,” says Dr. Heath Morrison, Superintendent for the Washoe County School District. “It is extremely important that we get our children thinking about college at a younger age. The Fast Start Program will be a tremendous asset that will expose our students to college level courses and the rigor involved in a university environment.” (Dr. Morrison is not connected to Morrison University.)

Morrison University offers undergraduate degrees in business and technology fields and a Master of Business Administration. The school is located at 10315 Professional Circle in Reno.
