Research shows that 71 percent of students who complete a two-year degree and transfer to a university earn a degree within four years. up2U motivates students to complete a two-year degree, transfer to university and earn a university degree within four years.
University benefits include:
- Increased total enrollment of transfer student population
- Increased enrollment of highly motivated and intellectually capable transfer students
- Increased student persistence and completion

Students who wish to participate in up2U and save on transfer tuition must:
- Enroll in at least nine credits at M State and continuously maintain at least a 2.5 GPA from entry through completion within no more than six consecutive semesters
- Register for and attend an up2U orientation session
- Take the CLA+ performance task assessment upon entry (at 0 credits) and during the last semester prior to transfer
- Attend tutoring sessions to review strengths and challenges highlighted on the CLA+ formative assessments
- Complete an AA, AFA or AS transfer degree within three years from the first semester enrolled
- Prior to completion at M State, enroll as a full-time student at the up2U partner university for the successive semester
- Continuously maintain at least a 3.0 GPA during the full-time enrollment at the up2U partner university
The amount of university the scholarship award is based on the student's two-year college cumulative GPA, and his or her score on the CLA+. Your university determines the amount of tuition savings based on the GPA/CLA+ scale.
