up2U and Students

up2U is a unique program designed to support learning and motivate students to persist toward university transfer and degree completion. The program also offers scholarship savings during the first year at an up2U transfer university.

Students who wish to participate in up2U and receive a transfer tuition savings must:

  • Enroll in a minimum of 9 credits per semester at M State
  • Attend a mandatory up2U orientation session on campus or online
  • Remain in good academic standing with a minimum of 2.5 GPA and no academic warnings or suspensions
  • Continuously enroll every semester (excluding summer)
  • Complete a degree within three years from the first semester enrolled
  • Take the CLA+ performance task assessment upon completion at M State
  • Apply and enroll at an up2U partner university and continuously maintain at least a 3.0 GPA during the first year of full-time enrollment

* Only new students enrolling at M State are eligible to participate in up2U. Current or transfer students are not eligible for the program.

The amount of the scholarship savings is based on your cumulative GPA and your performance on the CLA+.
