The Muscat Scholars Program is a program developed for the academic and personal success of first-generation college students at the University of San Francisco.
Congratulations on your acceptance to the University of San Francisco! We are proud of your accomplishments leading to this next journey.
As you know, this next journey of yours will present its own excitement and challenges: a new city, a new way of being a student, making new friends while maintaining existing relationships, and discovering your academic and personal passions on the way toward finding a career.
Moving through these challenges can both be exciting and nerve-wracking for you (and your parents/family too!). We would like to offer you the opportunity to prepare for your journey as a part of a program called the Muscat Scholars Program (MSP). MSP is a supportive community of Scholars and mentors who work together to develop the relationships, skills, and abilities to be successful in the first year and beyond. Put simply, MSP is the best beginning to your USF college career that you could ever ask for: friends, mentors, connections, and a lot of support along the way.
In the next few pages, you’ll learn all that there is to learn about what MSP is and hear from many of our students about the MSP experience. We hope that you will consider applying to our program and take advantage of the many resources and experiences that Muscat Scholars have available to them.
MSP is not just a bridge program — it’s a comprehensive program that consists of shared classes, retreats, events on- and off-campus, and workshops. You will have a peer mentor, staff mentor, and a community of scholars to support you!
We look forward to you joining your new MSP family. If you have any questions, please feel free to email us!
