services to help students develop the skills needed to stay in school
and successfully graduate from college. CAMP services include
providing help with admissions, financial aid and other university
services; CAMP staff can assist the student in finding housing either
on-campus or off-campus and find roommates with your same interests;
select and register for classes and introduce them to campus services;
adjust to college life through individual and group counseling;
develop a long-term support system; develop study and college survival
skills; obtain tutors for academic assistance; receive supplemental
financial assistance for books, supplies, health insurance and
transportation. CAMP is evaluated by its retention and college
graduation rates. Nationally, CAMP grant directors report
approximately a 83% college freshman retention rate. Nearly three-
quarters of all CAMP students graduate with baccalaureate degrees.
