Success is up2U
Welcome to M State! You've reached this web page because you're interested in signing up to participate in the up2U program, a unique competency-based program designed to support learning and motivate students to persist toward university transfer and degree completion. The up2U program can also lead to significant savings from a scholarship award at one of our up2U partner universities. This program is designed to prepare you for success at M State and beyond!
To be eligible for the up2U program, students need to:
* Only new students enrolling at M State are eligible to participate in up2U. Transfer students are not eligible for the program.
At the core of the program is significant savings from a scholarship award for the first year of full-time enrollment at an up2U partner university. The amount of the award is based on your cumulative GPA and CLA+ test scores. Each up2U university partner sets its own award amount based on these two measures, ranging from $500 to $5,000 for one academic year.
Your scholarship will be based on the leveraging between the cumulative GPA and competency demonstrated on the College Learning Assessment + (CLA+) performance task. Students who maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher through completion at M State are eligible to participate in up2U. The amount of tuition savings is based partially on the student's performance on the CLA+. Competency levels demonstrated on the CLA+ augment, validate or offset the student's cumulative GPA upon completion of an M State degree or the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum.
