Welcome to the TRiO Upward Bound Program at Laredo College



The Upward Bound Program is a college prep program specifically designed for first-generation and/or low-income students. This year-round program is free to all participants and is funded by the U.S. Department of Education.


The TRiO Upward Bound Program (UB) enhances students’ academic skills and motivates them to successfully transition from high school to college to pursue a post-secondary education.


The UB program operates year round and provides multiple services via three academic components at the Fort McIntosh Campus.
