At ReUp Education, it is our mission to clear a path for students who have taken a break from college to return to school, complete their remaining credits, and graduate.

40% OF COLLEGE STUDENTS IN THE UNITED STATES DROP OUT. That’s more than 37 million Americans who were on the path to a degree but couldn’t finish. Many dropouts are the first in their family to go to college, with a myriad of financial, social, and academic challenges that keep them from finishing.

From that point students often take jobs that don’t pay as well, ignite their passion, or let them reach their potential. Even worse, they leave college with mountains of debt just like graduates, but without the earning power of a diploma.

While this completion crisis is alarming and a true tragedy of opportunity, we believe it is fixable.


ReUp addresses the fact that over 89% of dropouts report they’ve thought about re-enrolling, by partnering with universities to re-enroll students. We use proprietary technology to locate these students and give them the resources to get back in school. Our program includes big data analytics, marketing IP, human ingenuity, and a lot of heart and soul. Once students go back to school, we continue to support them in their quest to earn a degree.

Since February of 2017, we’ve sent over 4000 students back to school. We are the only higher-ed company in the U.S. to focus exclusively on serving this unique population.
