Veterans Upward Bound (VUB)

VUB Logo

The mission of Veterans Upward Bound (VUB) is to provide supportive services to military veterans, guard members, and reservists which will enable them to enter or re-enter post-secondary education. Although our office is located on the University of Central Missouri, veterans in the program can attend a school of their choice.

VUB staff will help you understand the costs of attendance to post-secondary education, and assist you with the necessary paperwork and applications. We want to help you prepare fully, so we offer assessments to tell you where you are, and tutoring to get you where you want to be. VUB staff can also help you find resources such as housing, childcare, or employment, no matter where you want to start your new academic journey.

Fill out our inquiry form to receive more information and empower your future! Every service we offer is free and there is no obligation. Come visit us and we will discuss your options.

Veterans Upward Bound is funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Education.
