The Office of University Migrant Services (UMS) at California
State University, Fresno provides retention services to university students
from migrant and seasonal farmworker families. UMS works with campus student
services, faculty, and community-based agencies to improve educational opportunities
for UMS students.
UMS is for you if you are entering Fresno State (freshman through graduate level) and have a migrant or seasonal farmworker background. As a retention service, we are concerned with helping you stay in school. We will help you explore your academic and career choices and make sure that you have the information you need to make the decisions which will shape your future.
The UMS staff are trained professionals in various areas including academic advising, counseling, career development, and language skill development. They will take a personal interest in helping you with your adjustment to the university environment.
Special services designed to assist UMS students in developing their academic potential include academic assistance, counseling, career planning, cultural enrichment, and financial aid advisement.
College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP) is a federal program designed for freshmen migrant and seasonal farmworker students. UMS students eligible for CAMP may be offered a CAMP stipend, vision and dental insurance, and other supplemental services.
To apply to UMS or CAMP, write, call, or better yet, come by in person to our office. Our staff will gladly provide you with the necessary applications and materials.
