Participation Policy 

In order to remain an active participant in the Upward Bound program, you must:

Participate in the Project

If a student does not participate enough to earn a stipend for two consecutive months, he/she will be terminated from the program. In order to regain admission to the program, the student and his/her parents must meet with the Upward Bound Director and an Upward Bound Advisor to establish a plan for continued participation.

Achieve Academically

If a student earns below a 2.0 for two consecutive academic terms, the student will be ineligible for any participation stipend for the following term. Also, the student and his/her parents must meet with the Upward Bound Director and an Upward Bound Advisor to establish a plan for academic achievement in order to continue to participate in Upward Bound.
