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 competency-based transfer tuition reduction program designed to prepare you for success at M State and beyond.
up2U is a unique program designed to support learning and motivate students to persist toward university transfer and degree completion. The program also offers significant tuition savings at an up2U partner university.
Students who wish to participate in up2U and save on tuition costs must:
At the core of the program is a significant tuition savings for first year of full-time enrollment at MSUM. Your tuition savings 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.
