Migrant Student Services
Migrant Student Services goal is to advance education and empower students from migrant and seasonal farm working communities to bring about positive change in their lives, communities, and the world.
The Michigan State University College Assistance Migrant Scholars Program (MSU CAMP) is an educational program that offers individuals with migrant or seasonal farm work backgrounds, a unique opportunity to begin an undergraduate program at MSU. This program offers the best conditions in order to help our students. Funded by the U.S. Department of Education, Michigan State University’s College Assistance Migrant Program was initiated in 2000 and is a unique program designed to service incoming migrant and seasonal farm worker students at Michigan State University.
Michigan State University High School Equivalency Program (MSU HEP) is a secondary education program that offers individuals with migrant or seasonal farm work backgrounds, a unique opportunity to obtain a General Educational Development certificate (GED). This program offers the best conditions in order to help our students obtain their GED.
The Michigan State University Identification and Recruitment (ID&R) Center was created to fulfill a contract from the Michigan Department of Education (MDE) related to its Migrant Education Program (MEP). The State’s overall goal is to increase the state’s allocation from the Office of Migrant Education (OME) by identifying a greater number of migrant students, to provide access to resources to supportive services for migrant children not currently available in the school system, and to identify areas where there is a need for new MEP programs.
