Upward Bound is a federally funded TRIO program. The goal of the program is to assist high school students in achieving a college education.
The Oklahoma State University - Oklahoma City Upward Bound program has operated since 1995. The program is approved to serve 76 students collectively from three target high schools: Western Heights and Putnam City West.
The OSU-Oklahoma City Upward Bound program offers year-round support to participating students throughout their high school years. Once students are accepted into the program they remain in the program until they graduate from high school providing they continue to fulfill the program requirements. After graduation, students are enrolled in six-credit hours of summer college classes on the OSU-Oklahoma City campus.
The program is available to eligible students at no cost. Meals, admission costs and transportation needs are all provided by the program during Upward Bound activities. The cost to the student is participation and performance in the program's activities.
