Veterans Upward Bound
The Veterans Upward Bound (VUB) program offers free classes and advising to qualified veterans and active duty military members. The classes offered are English, math, Spanish, basic science, computer skills and career counseling. All class materials are provided by VUB.
VUB staff members are VA certifying officials and provide assistance for financial aid, scholarships, and admission applications. Emphasis is on low-income and first-generation students.
Courses do not count for college credit but prepare the student for college. The free English and math classes can be taken in lieu of remedial classes at PPCC to assist students in their basic skills. Classes may be repeated as often as needed.
