Introduction to TRIO UB Presentation
Students in Upward Bound come from families where neither parent has earned a four-year college degree or who will need financial assistance to pay for college. Approximately 70% of all Upward Bound participants must be members of traditionally underserved student groups (neither parent has earned a college degree and the student is moderate-income) while the remaining students must be one of those two or a student who is at high risk of academic failure).
The guideline to determine income status is set by the Federal Government. The income levels are not based on what a family makes per year, it looks at a family's taxable income (usually line 15 on tax Form 1040).
The recruiting process starts in September and ends in early November. Over these months, prospective students will attend four Saturday meetings where they will experience the Upward Bound program. During their time with us, they will also complete and turn in their application and all its parts. Once early November comes the staff will go through all applications to select which students are accepted into the program. Every student applying for the program will then receive a letter around the beginning of December informing them if they were accepted, waitlisted, or not accepted into the program.
