Welcome to TRiO Veterans Upward Bound Program
NOTICE: Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic Crisis/National Emergency, the Veterans Upward Bound (VUB) office is operating remotely away from our UPENN campus location. We are still “open for business” to all our current veteran participants and those prospective veterans who may be interested in pursuing their post-secondary education and learning more about our program and services. Please contact us at our regular phone number, 215-898-6892.
The TRIO Veterans Upward Bound (VUB) program hosted by the University of Pennsylvania is a FREE, college preparatory program for eligible veterans federally funded with a grant from the U.S. Department of Education. The program offers college preparatory services to include academic assessment, advising, and counseling; non-credited academic classes and tutoring; college access; and educational support services. The program is intended to encourage, empower, and acclimatize college-bound veterans for the rigors of post-secondary education and training. The primary goal of VUB is to fully prepare eligible veterans to enter the college of their choice, be successful in college, and to graduate from college.
*Participation in VUB can also enhance a veteran’s academic skills in preparation for testing and certification into the skilled labor workforce.
