Program Description

The College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP) at the University of New Mexico is 100% federally funded through the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Migrant Education. The residential CAMP program was established to identify, recruit, admit, and enroll migrant and seasonal farm worker students and provide them with academic, social, and financial support to enable the completion of their first year of college.


To provide personal, professional, and academic enrichment amongst its participants, staff, and community at large. Through personalized mentoring, tutoring and advisement, CAMP will strive to aid in developing skills necessary to achieve post-secondary education. CAMP will provide student participants the tools to successfully complete their first year at the university by means of academic, social and financial support, and creative activities and events. Partnerships with university programs will ensure that all CAMP participants completing their first year of college will be transitioned into programs that will continue to support them
