St. Edward's University College Assistance Migrant Program. End of the Year Report, 1981-1982.
The College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP), a one-year college program, is designed to facilitate access and, with comprehensive support activities, the successful completion of two semesters of college for qualified migrant students. Combining university and program resources, CAMP provides total financial aid to cover tuition, fees, and other normal expenses. The university guarantees CAMP students completing their freshman year the additional financial aid to complete their undergraduate studies if they remain in good academic standing and make normal academic progress toward a degree. High school and GED (General Educational Development) graduates are recruited from all parts of the nation; the majority come from Texas and Florida. Program components include recruitment, academic coordination and curriculum, summer enrichment and orientation, freshman studies/basic skills, tutoring, counseling, dorm life, and medical services. This report provides information on CAMP's accomplishments in each program component during the 1981-82 academic year. Data indicate that of 104 students beginning the fall semester, 91 finished with an average grade point average (GPA) of 2.67 and an average of 13.65 credit hours, and that of 88 students beginning the spring semester, 83 completed with an average GPA of 2.54 and an average of 12.78 credit hours. These results marked improved success levels in student performance. (NQA)
