However, participants who enrolled in a postsecondary education program after leaving VUB (either completing VUB or not) are no longer eligible to reenter VUB.

If a participant coded as “reentry” in one year (e.g., 2013–14) continues into the next year (e.g., 2014–15), he or she should be coded as “continuing” for the second year and any subsequent year in which the student is served (2014–15 and continuous years thereafter).

-A prior-year participant is an individual who participated in the Veterans Upward Bound program in a previous reporting period but who has not received services on a continual basis during the current reporting period.

Because the postsecondary enrollment cohort year codes that the Department established for 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014 were derived from the data that grantees submitted in prior years’ APRs, the Department will not allow changes to those codes in the 2014–15 or subsequent years’ APRs. We also will not allow changes to codes 2222 and 9999.
The cohort years and values in the grantee’s final 2013–14 APR are included in the file a grantee may download from the 2014–15 VUB APR Web application. Please see the General Instruction for more information.
