College Success with Upward Bound

The U.S. Department of Education’s Trio Program funds both the Upward Bound (UB) and Upward Bound Math/Science (UBMS) Programs, which help high school students prepare for life in a collegial setting. UB and UBMS are six week programs that run approximately from June 11 to July 21 in which students take college classes, conduct field research, live in the residence halls, and listen to various guest speakers on career topics. Typical college classes that UB and UBMS students enroll in are ornithology, college algebra, Spanish, literature and composition. Upon completion of the program, students with grades C or better receive high school credit for participation and those in their senior year receive college credit that will transfer. High school students that are eligible to participate in UB and UBMS must come from a low-income and first-generation for postsecondary education background. To learn more about the Upward Bound programs, please visit the U.S. Department of Education UB and UBMS.
