What is Upward Bound?

Upward Bound was established by special amendments to the Higher Education Act of 1965.  The program operates year round and provides services through three components.  These services include, but are not limited to, a six week summer residential program in which students live on campus and attend classes, a bridge program for those students who have successfully completed two summer sessions, and a nine month academic tutorial program for students involved in Upward Bound.  Some other basic services are instructional advising, personal career development, cultural enrichment, and individual assistance in applying to colleges.
