Upward Bound Program
Upward Bound Program at SUNY Buffalo State was established to provide fundamental support to participants in their preparation for college entrance. The program provides opportunities for participants to succeed in their precollege performance and ultimately in their higher education pursuits.
The program offers services to high school students between 13 to 19 years of age. Conceptually, the Upward Bound Program at SUNY Buffalo State was designed to increase the number of disadvantaged students with demonstrated potential to enroll and graduate from institutions of higher education. Upward Bound serves: high school students from low-income families and/or high school students from families in which neither parent holds a bachelor's degree.
