The Muscat Scholars Program’s academic component will provide you great advantages: the opportunity to earn academic credit and get a glimpse of the academic experience at the University of San Francisco.
There are four courses that Muscat Scholars participants take during the program: Intro to College Writing, Intro to College Math, Contemporary Issues, and Information Literacy. Each of these courses are taught by University faculty/lecturers or USF alumni.
Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive 2 credits toward graduation. These courses are graded and will be included in each student’s grade point average (GPA).
Students are also exposed to many resources that are valuable during the school year: the Center for Academic and Student Achievement (CASA), the Gleeson Library, the Learning & Writing Center, Multicultural Student Services, the Counseling Center, and The Priscilla A. Scotlan Career Services Center.
During the Program, students participate in study halls and can receive tutoring support for any of the courses they are taking.
