What is up2U?
up2U is a unique program that supports learning and motivates students to persist toward university transfer and degree completion. The program can lead to significant savings from a scholarship award for the first year of full-time enrollment at an up2U partner university.
What are the eligibility requirements?
What are the participation requirements?
To participate in up2U, you must:
How will this help me save?
Each up2U university partner configures its own scholarship award amount ranging from $500 to $5,000. The scholarship amount will be based on the leveraging between cumulative GPA and the competency demonstrated on the 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. 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.
Is there a participation fee?
There is no cost for participating in up2U. The workshops, resources and support services are free for student participants.
What is the CLA+?
The Collegiate Learning Assessment (CLA+) is a performance-based assessment that measure critical thinking and writing skills. For more detailed information regarding the CLA+, consult the CLA+ Student Guide.
Will I need to attend an orientation for up2U?
An orientation session is mandatory for all up2U students. One session will be offered on each campus, with two additional options for completing the orientation online. Students must sign up for an orientation time prior to the orientation deadline.
If, for any reason, a student opts out of the up2U program, is he or she eligible to opt back in?
No, students must meet all participation requirements, which includes continuous enrollment in at least 9 credits.
Is there an appeal process for participating students who are disqualified from up2U?
A student is automatically disqualified from the program if he or she does not meet all the participation requirements. There is no appeals process.
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.
