Nebraska Methodist College Upward Bound

Program Description

TRIO Classic Upward Bound is a federally funded college preparation program through the U.S. Department of Education. NMC first received Upward Bound funding in 2007.

The program provides opportunities for participants to succeed in their precollege performance and ultimately in their higher education pursuits. Upward Bound serves: high school students from low-income families; and high school students from families in which neither parent holds a bachelor's degree.

The goal of NMC Upward Bound is to increase the rates at which participants from the Omaha area complete high school and enroll in and graduate from post-secondary education programs.
