JumpStart Mentoring

JumpStart Mentoring

JumpStart offers new freshmen an exceptional academic and social experience that introduces them into UTRGV’s tradition of student academic success. Students are immersed in a supportive five-week academic program designed to help them meet Texas’s College Readiness standards while enhancing your ability to access and leverage the vast resources and opportunities available within the University. JumpStart allows students to build a comprehensive academic network of support with recognized faculty, supportive peer mentors, engaged academic advisors, and knowledgeable tutors to create a unique learning experience.

JumpStart Scholars are matched with a mentor that is a successful returning student. Mentors will provide support to students based on our three mentoring pillars: academics, personal growth and involvement.
