Our mission is to provide VUB participants with the educational opportunities they need to be successful. Most of our program participants are non-traditional college students who face special challenges in re-entering the college environment. The VUB staff at Weber State University is especially experienced and sympathetic in this area and has the expertise to help veterans move forward in obtaining the education they want. We serve veterans at any of the institutions of higher education located along the Wasatch Front.


Veterans Upward Bound specifically serves veterans who are transitioning from the service into post-secondary education. We offer free academic advising, career counseling, testing,and instructional services to eligible veterans.
