ReUp partners with universities and community colleges to find, engage and empower students who have left school to return, navigate a path to complete their degrees, and achieve their goals. ReUp communicates with students through phone, email, text messaging and social media. The Company pays each semester the students attend. Over the past two years, Reup has helped over 8,000 students to get back to more than 30 partner universities and colleges. The company aims to help students to leverage prior investments in education to put them on a path to higher wages.
