Veterans Upward Bound (VUB) is a FREE U.S. Department of Education TRIO program that is hosted at Suffolk University. Our mission is to support U.S. Military Veterans prepare for their entry into post-secondary education. We seek to provide Veterans with academic refreshers, workshops, and seminars to ensure that you enter into school well prepared and confident - Certificates, Vocational Training, Associates Degree, and Bachelor’s Degrees are all education programs.
We offer a variety of courses and formats to ensure that every eligible Veteran who needs or wants our services can access them. We offer full services to eligible Veterans residing in the counties of Suffolk, Middlesex, Essex, and Norfolk and limited services in Worcester County.
Admissions are done on a rolling basis and we have a variety of course options. We are offering on-site classes, 1-day workshops, week-long academic boot camps, as well as a full online class.
Currently, there are 49 VUB programs nationwide, including Puerto Rico, ready to assist veterans. We are the ONLY program in Massachusetts.
**Although we are hosted by Suffolk University, we assist ALL eligible Veterans and will help students apply and enroll in any school of their choice**
