FORMS

Hello GEAR UP Family! Here is where you will find many of the forms we use throughout the year during our Outreach Visits to your schools, Saturday Workshops at Michigan State University, Campus Visits, and the Summer Residency Program. Multiple forms are required for participation in our program, so please pay close attention to the requirements/descriptions for each form.

The MI GEAR UP Program at Michigan State University requires each participant and parent/guardian to fill out the following forms at least once a year. Please read carefully through what each document is asking and feel free to contact us with any questions you might have.

 

MI GEAR UP Pledge:

The MI GEAR UP Pledge is a commitment from the student and parent to be involved with the program. If your student does not meet the items listed on the pledge, this should not prevent you from signing the document. The pledge represents a progress in curriculum and school requirements, therefore he/she can still participate. Any student who participates in the MI GEAR UP Program is expected to have a pledge signed by themselves and their parents/guardians. The MI GEAR UP Pledge is provided at various times throughout the semester at Saturday Workshops and/or School Outreach opportunities, but is also available for download by clicking on the link provided below.

MI GEAR UP Application:

The MI GEAR UP Application is the ONLY formal document that is necessary for your student to begin and continue participation. We are required to obtain the information on this sheet from program participants, so we continue to receive funding. If there are questions you or your student do not know the answer to, please try to find out or turn the application in with the intention to find out at a later time. The MI GEAR UP Application is available for download by clicking on the link provided below.

MI GEAR UP Parent & Student Surveys:

The MI GEAR UP Program is required to submit anonymous surveys to our state office to determine what a parent/guardian and student knows about information related to study tips, college prep, financial aid, etc., when they begin participating in the program; then, this information is compared to what they know after each year they have participated with the program. This is also required to be done at least once a year. The MI GEAR UP Student Survey and Parent/Guardian Surveys are available for download by clicking on the links provided below.
