Program Description

Upward Bound is a college-based program that combines academic instruction, tutoring, college preparation, and cultural awareness to provide participants a solid foundation for secondary and postsecondary success. The program provides services throughout the school year to each student in their home school and weekly meetings. In addition, the students will meet once a semester on the campus of Southeastern Oklahoma State University.

During the summer, eligible students are given the opportunity to participate in a residential program. The students reside in a residential hall on Southeastern�??�?�¢??s campus and attend classes to improve their academic skills or obtain college credit. The experience prepares them to succeed in a college environment after they graduate from high school. Some students will be eligible to earn from 6 to 13 credit hours when they complete the program. Which is equivalent to a semester of college paid for by the Upward Bound program.

Upward Bound is funded by a grant from the US Dept. of Education.
