The TRIO Veterans Upward Bound (VUB) Program at the University of Pennsylvania is a FREE, non-credited, non-profit, pre-college program federally funded with a grant from the U.S. Department of Education. The primary goal of TRIO VUB is to prepare eligible veterans to enter college, be successful in college, and to graduate from college. In order for students to be fully prepared for college, TRIO VUB emulates the college experience. High expectations are placed on students while attending TRIO VUB in order to support their success in the Program and later in college.

TRIO VUB provides 160 students annually with academic instruction and support services. Students come to TRIO VUB from Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia counties in Pennsylvania and Camden County in New Jersey.
TRIO VUB operates three program cycles during the year. Classes begin in September, January, and May. Each program cycle is 15 weeks (1 week of orientation, 13 weeks of classes and 1 week for finals). Classes are held Monday to Friday, T.O.day classes from 11:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and T.O.night classes from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Basic (100 level) or intermediate (200 level) classes in Computer, Language Lab, Literature, Spanish, Math, and Science are offered in addition to various academic, financial, and character building workshops.

TRIO Veterans Upward Bound is funded under a grant from the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Postsecondary Education.
