College Assistance Migrant Program

What is CAMP?

The College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP) at Washington State University is a federally funded program designed to meet the needs of students with migrant or seasonal farm-working backgrounds.

CAMP offers to eligible students' valuable information on pre-college transitions and support services to aid the development of skills necessary to succeed in their first year of higher education. Services include academic advising, tutoring, skills workshops, health referrals, financial aid stipends, and cultural enrichment activities. Students will have the opportunity to develop lifelong friends while participating in social activities in a collegiate environment.

CAMP collaborates with WSU faculty, student services, outreach programs, and community-based agencies to improve educational and career opportunities for all CAMP students. CAMP Scholars have the opportunity to receive on-going academic support services from the CAMP program. These support services may facilitate CAMP students' retention in higher education through graduation and beyond.
