Migrant University Summer Experience

The Migrant University Summer Experience (MUSE) program is a six week summer enrichment program for migrant high school juniors and seniors from across the Rio Grande Valley (freshmen and sophomores are eligible upon the discretion of the school district). During this summer program students gain a true university experience, while earning either two high school credits, or 6 college credit hours. Students also receive on-campus housing (residential camp), a student ID that provides them access to select facilities on campus as well as a meal plan at the university café. During their stay students are placed in a professional workplace for job shadowing throughout the university and attend college readiness and leadership seminars while living on the UTRGV-Edinburg campus.
