The Academic Program has two distinct paths. A student can either enroll in one year-long course, or two semester long courses. When completed, the year-long course will have earned your student 10 units. Each year-long course is $700 (plus any associated lab fees).

Upward Bound assists students who are first-generation college-bound from low-income backgrounds who intend to enroll in and graduate from post-secondary education programs. The OXY Upward Bound Summer Program is an academically intensive, challenging and richly rewarding experience. Participants live on campus in residence halls and enroll in college-preparatory classes in varying subjects for high school credit. They learn how to create community with students from other high schools and different neighborhoods, ethnicities and languages. A team of Oxy students serving as resident advisors and tutors encourage participants to define for themselves why college is the most important step they can make as young adults.
