UMass Boston and Suffolk University Upward Bound Program

Jul 17, 2013

About: The Veterans Upward Bound (VUB) Program at the UMass Boston and Suffolk University provides a unique opportunity for Veterans of all ages to gain access to information about college and career awareness, acquire the academic skills required for entry into higher education and/or to acquire the equivalent of a high school diploma. 

Eligibility: In order to qualify, the Veteran:
  • be U.S. citizen or permanent resident
  • have served over 180 days of active military duty or have a service-connected disability. For reservists serving on or after September 11, 2001, shorter terms of service may provide eligibility
  • have a military discharge other than dishonorable
  • have academic need
And, applicants must qualify in one of the following two ways:
  • They must be a potential first-generation college graduate (their primary caregiver had not graduated from a four-year higher education institution before the applicant turned 18), OR
  • They must meet income guidelines for the program. These are based on federal taxable income and family size. Please call for detailed guidelines.
