The Upward Bound Program at Bemidji State seeks to work with its participants to academically succeed in high school and pursue some form of postsecondary education.

UB Staff work closely with students to develop positive academic habits as well as career goals. UB participants are typical students who are looking for academic support and encouragement to challenge themselves today and in the future.

Upward Bound assists students by providing answers to questions such as:

  • What does it take to be the first in my family to graduate from college?
  • When do I start thinking about applying for college?
  • How do I pursue a college education when it costs so much money?
