What is my admissions status with CAMP at UTB?  

 

Your application packet is complete when all of the following documents have been received by CAMP:

  • Application
  • Most recent high school transcript OR GED Certificate OR college transcript (no more than 24 post-high school college credits)
  • THEA, COMPASS or ACCUPLACER scores
  • ACT or SAT scores
  • Proof of Eligibility (Certificate of Eligibility, proof of qualifying seasonal/migrant work)
  • Essay
  • 2 Letters of Recommendation
  • Once your application packet is complete, you must schedule a one-on-one interview with CAMP staff.
 Students will be notified via email (written on the CAMP application) of their admission status.  
 

DO I QUALIFY FOR CAMP IF A REALTIVE OTHER THAN MY PARENTS AND SIBLINGS PERFORMED SEASONAL/MIGRANT AGRICULTURAL WORK? 

Grandparents, uncles, aunts, etc. can be used as a qualifying factor only if they are your legal guardians and/or are the primary source of household income. 
 
IF I WAS A MIGRANT STUDENT IN THE PAST, IN MIDDLE SCHOOL FOR EXAMPLE, BUT NOT ANYMORE DO I STILL QUALIFY FOR CAMP? 
 
YES. You do not need to have an active Certificate of Eligibility (COE) to qualify for CAMP.
 
If you NEVER participated or were eligible to participate in a school migrant education program then you would need to prove that you or an immediate family member performed migrant/seasonal farm work for 75 days in the past 24 months. Employment verifications letters are useful for documenting qualifying agricultural work.
 

Important things to remember:

 
if you plan to leave and work for the summer make sure that you have taken care of all your admissions and financial aid requirements before you leave for work.
