Welcome To Pre-College Programs


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) 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.

Weekly Tutor Highlights


Hello, I'm Katherine Stamer, current student at the University of Maryland: College Park studying to become a middle school math teacher. In addition to working with Upward Bound, I am also a tutor at Mathnasium and a teacher aide at the Center for Young Children on the university’s campus. I have a love for history, specifically World War ll, and have so far written one hundred pages of my own, original novel set during that time period. My favorite television show is Supernatural and I have a love for traveling. I have been to Pittsburgh, Las Vegas, Orlando, and the Virgin Islands, and am planning trips to Dallas and New Orleans for this year.
