How much does this program cost?

Does the college I attend have to be John Wood Community College or Quincy University if I am in this program?

    • No - but both colleges would love to have you as a student. You would be so close to your UB Staff! You have the option to attend any college you choose.

Does Upward Bound pay for college?
