Pre-College Programs in Undergraduate Studies at the University of Maryland provides education services to mitigate economic and social, inequities that impact access to higher-education.

We provide high school academic counseling and support, career guidance, financial aid guidance, personal development seminars and college preparation workshops.

Pre-College Programs is a Federally funded TRIO program and is comprised of Upward Bound (UB), Upward Bound Math-Science (UBMS) and LIFT Programs. About 96% of our students attend college, many receiving prestigious awards, such as Gates Millennium and Posse scholarships. Our students come from a wide variety of diverse backgrounds, many from immigrant families and most are future first generation college students.
