Pre-College offers high schoolers “college experience.” 

UM welcomed nearly 600 high school students to a crash course in what it’s like to attend college. Students took classes with University professors, participated in college prep workshops, and explored South Florida on class field trips and weekend excursions. The pre-college experience was documented by a team of photographers and videographers from the Division of University Communications, who visited classes in forensics, microbiology, and tropical marine biology. View the Summer Scholars multi-media project.

Preview College Life

"This program was the best three weeks of my life! I met amazing students from around the world and discovered that we share the same interests. I loved earning six credits in the major I want to pursue, and I gained valuable time management skills that I use every day. I had an amazing time, and I know others will too."
