Individualized College Visit

Visiting a college campus is extremely important to making the right decision on which college to attend.  Upward Bound provides one free individualized college visit to seniors and their parents during the senior year.  The visit will be of the college that the senior has been admitted to and plans to attend.  A campus tour and appointments with admissions, financial aid and academic advisors will be arranged.  Transportation and a meal will also be provided. Individualized college visits must be requested at least one month in advance.
