Veterans Upward Bound - Academic Services

Academic Services

Participants of VUB can take advantage of a variety of academic services.

Refresher Classes

VUB offers free academic refresher classes that are individually designed by the counselor and instructors to best help each student refresh the basic academic skills. Our teachers work with students in numerous subject areas, including language arts, mathematics, science, foreign language, and academic computer skills. Classes are conveniently located next door to our office in a classroom with a dedicated computer lab. Students and alumni can use the computer lab outside of class by making an appointment with the instructors.

Online Tutoring

VUB offers free access to Skills Tutor, an online tutorial program that can be used anywhere out students have web access. While most students use the online tutorial as a supplement to their work in class, students who can not attend our refresher classes in-person can still work on their academic skills. Speak to our counselor to see if online tutoring will work for you.
