Policies

Each student is required to attend all academic advising sessions, Campus Experience Institutes, workshops, and required tutoring in order to maintain status as a regular participant and earn a stipend. Absences will not be tolerated.

Under NO circumstances will a student receive a stipend if he or she has failed to attend all required events.

1) Should a student have a school or education related conflict, he or she must inform the program staff in advance. If a student misses a session and does not notify the program staff prior to the absence, he or she will not receive a stipend and his or her place in the program will be in jeopardy.

2) The second time a student is absent without informing us in advance, he or she will be placed on probation.

3) The third time a student is absent without informing us in advance, he or she will be placed on the alternate list or dismissed from the program.

The program staff will distribute stipends for students in good standing. Students who have missed sessions or otherwise failed to meet program requirements for any reason will not receive stipends.

Students who are frequently absent but inform us in advance of their absences may have to be placed on the alternate list due to our commitment to total participation and because of the limited number of participant spaces available.

Any Upward Bound Program student who is not demonstrating a sincere commitment to his or her education will be either placed on probation or will be removed from the program.

Students are required to provide original grade reports to program staff when requested.

Students are required to enroll in the following classes: at least 2 years of foreign language; 3 years of social studies; 4 years of English; 4 years of science; 4 years of math; 1 year of computer technology.

Students who at any time earn below a B- in any of their high school classes will be required to attend a weekly tutoring session. Should a student be unable to meet during the regularly scheduled tutoring times, he or she must make arrangements for private tutoring through the program office. Students who are required to attend tutoring will be allowed no more than one absence from tutoring each month.

Students must communicate effectively and regularly with their program office. This includes reading mail, returning phone calls, returning mail, and similar activities.

Students must notify program staff when they move, change phone numbers or when any contact information changes.
