About


At ReUp Education, we partner with universities and colleges to re-enroll students who have stropped-out and support them throughout their return school, ensuring successful student outcomes. Over the past two years we've helped over 14,000 students re-enroll and 2,500 to graduate using a proprietary combination of data, technology, and people-centered service design.

Each year, millions of students stop-out of college or university – some 36 million Americans in the last two decades. The reasons students stop out are multi-dimensional, with the primary barriers to completion being financial, work, family obligations, health-related issues, and motivation. Many of these “Forgotten Students” leave college with mountains of debt (over $27 billion annually) and without the earning power of a diploma. The social, economic, and human potential loss is enormous.

While this completion crisis is alarming, ReUp has the solution. We are proud to work with some of the most diverse universities and colleges in the country - tackling this problem student by student.
