up2U Workshops and CLA+ Testing

The Collegiate Learning Assessment (CLA+) is a test students will take upon entering the up2U program and in their final semester at M State, to measure the development of critical thinking and writing skills. Performance on the test, along with a student's cumulative GPA, will determine the scholarship award amount to an up2U partner university.

M State offers performance task workshops to reinforce what students have learned in their classes and to provide additional practice and instruction in mastering the core skills assessed by the CLA+. Workshops are encouraged, but not mandatory.
