RU Plus Program

The RU Plus program can help those scheduled for probation or parole.


The RU Plus program is offered for individuals scheduled for probation or parole. The program is a transitional accountability based reporting process. The RU Plus program can be offered as a legal alternative to court-mandated counseling or treatment programs. We have a quick application process to determine if one can qualify for the program. To apply simply contact us. You’ll need to provide the contact information of a magistrate judge, lawyer, case worker, or parole officer.

We provide a letter of proposal for the program. The proposal includes the various facets of requirements, reports, and accountability procedures that will be set in place as a part of the program.

The purpose of this plan is to increase the level of structure in the life of the student and require more accountability to the RU Director and their leadership.

The student is required to have a meeting with an RU Director before beginning RU Plus in order to understand all components of the program.
