Camp College

Camp College is an early intervention college preparation program targeted to prepare under-represented students for college. Approximately 120 rising high school seniors (class of 2015) from across the state are invited to attend a three-day, overnight, all-expense paid program. Students will have assistance identifying schools which match their interests and needs; write an application essay and create a resume; navigate the financial aid maze; learn tips, techniques, and strategies for the ACT/SAT; and attend a college fair.  Volunteers from colleges, universities, community based organizations, and high schools across the state may participate.

Camp College 2014 will be held on the University of Texas at Arlington campus from June 9-11, 2014.

If you have any students who may be interested, please have them apply for Camp College no later than April 1, 2014. Please remember that this deadline includes the additional student packet, the link to which students will receive with their confirmation email. Please keep in mind that space is limited, so we encourage students to apply as early as possible.

Mentors are needed to help the students understand the college-going process. As a mentor, you will stay in the dorm with the students and help them complete the Camp College curriculum. If you are interested in being aMentor for this program, please fill out the Mentor application by April 1.
