Migrant Education Resources

Federal and State programs that offer services to migrant students.

High School Equivalency Program (HEP)

HEP is designed to assist seasonal agricultural workers and their families in obtaining the equivalence of a high school diploma through the General Educational Development (GED) Test. In addition, HEP helps students by providing instruction in Spanish and English, preparing them to move on to higher levels of education or training and into more stable and better-paid employment. Individuals 17 years or older, including parents and other adults, who have worked in agricultural jobs for at least 75 days in the previous two years are eligible to apply.

College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP)

CAMP helps students from migrant and seasonal farmworker backgrounds succeed in college. It offers a pre-college transition and first year support system to assist students in developing the skills needed to stay in school and successfully graduate from college.
