Eligibility - students must be either:

  1. Low-Income - the term "low-income" means an individual whose family's taxable income for the preceding year did not exceed 150 percent of the poverty level amount. See table in application.
  2. First Generation – neither parent nor legal guardian of applying student has completed a four year bachelor’s degree from an accredited academic institution.
  3. High Academic Need – students with a high academic need may be admitted on a limited basis. This is due to the federal mandate for all Upward Bound programs to have a 2/3 population of program students being BOTH low-income and first generation.
