Upward Bound

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?
  • How do I pursue a college education when it costs so much money?




Programs and Services 

  • Academic Year Services - UB provides academic advising, tutoring, mentoring, college visits and monthly workshops throughout the academic year.
  • Summer Program - 6 week residential program that includes courses in math, science, literature, writing and world language.  The summer program is an enrichment program not only in academic learning, but also in social and cultural experiences.
