Veterans Upward Bound

The Veterans Upward Bound Program (VUB) is a program, free to participants, dedicated to providing eligible veterans with numerous educational and counseling services. The basic qualification is an honorable discharge from any of the armed forces of the United States. VUB offers to all eligible veterans free seminars on the following topics: study skills, computer usage, time management, communication skills, and career planning.

The staff is trained to work with veterans on all academic levels. Veterans who have been out of the academic environment for a number of years will have their current skills evaluated. This evaluation will lead to a personal educational plan developed by the staff in consultation with the student. Various options are available: self-paced study, tutoring, or group study. A veteran who is or who has been enrolled in college courses can receive academic counseling, registration assistance, free tutorial services, and use of the VUB computer laboratory. All aspects of the program are designed to ensure each veteran's academic success. Interested veterans are urged to call (256) 549-8286. Veterans Upward Bound, one of the College's TRIO programs, is totally funded by the U.S. Department of Education.
