GEAR UP Students at CSUF


GEAR UP services are designed to increase the number of underrepresented students from low-income backgrounds to progress onto higher education, and to equip them to be successful in the baccalaureate and beyond. GEAR UP services aim to meet the following objectives:

  •  Enhance academic achievement in mathematics and language arts
  •  Provide on-time intervention to ensure academic success and increase student and parent knowledge of  postsecondary options and financial aid
  •  Develop a college-going culture among school sites and among families
  •  Promote systemic change aimed at increasing the number of students prepared to enter and succeed in  postsecondary education
