PCUB seeks to serve individuals who are either potential first-generation college students or who come from a financially disadvantaged background, or both. The goal is to assist the participants to successfully graduate from high school, enroll in college and earn a degree.

    All services are provided at no cost to the participants and their families.

    PCUB provides academic opportunities including:

    • a professional staff that is energetic, caring, and committed to helping you be successful in your educational pursuits;
    • an extraordinary atmosphere at a major college campus—the University of Tennessee, Knoxville—for all the program’s year-round activities;
    • exceptional opportunities to explore other colleges and universities, careers, financial aid options, tutoring, academic subjects, and college simulation during the summer; and
    • an exciting place to meet new friends, have fun, and take the next step in fulfilling and achieving your lifetime dreams and goals.
