Participant Responsibilities

Commitment to the program extends through high school and college. During this time, we work with students individually and in small groups to address their needs, develop their academic potential, and identify and meet realistic goals.

To help ensure your success in the program, each Upward Bound student must make a commitment to:

  • attend twice-a-month Saturday sessions September through May, after school tutoring sessions, field trips to colleges and universities, and the six-week summer academic program on the SDSU campus (including an out-of-state college tour)
  • maintain contact with Upward Bound staff members throughout the academic year
  • take appropriate, but challenging, classes each semester
