Our Story

A Little About Us

In 2015, upon discovering the scale and implications of thesome college, no degree population in the US, Paul Freedman (of Entangled), Nitzan Pelman, and Sarah Horn were moved to action — forming ReUp Education to focus exclusively on finding, engaging, and empowering the millions of Americans who leave school without a degree to return and graduate.

Since then, ReUp has become the leader in both understanding and supporting stopouts.

Now with dozens of partners, thousands of returning students, millions in recaptured tuition, and billions in long-term economic impact, we are building the national onramp for college completion — aimed at transforming higher education into a more dynamic and equitable ecosystem where all learners have access to the supports they need to accomplish their goals and improve their lives.
