This study examined factors associated with college outcomes in a migrant Latina/o college student sample enrolled in the College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP), and it also examined the relationship between CAMP services and students' academic perceptions (i.e., college academic self-efficacy, academic resilience, and school connectedness).
Abstract
High school achievement and academic resilience were significant positive predictors of college GPA, and living on-campus was a negative predictor. Financial aid in the form of loans, having family responsibilities, and working full-time off campus were negative predictors of persistence, while involvement in CAMP's personal and academic counseling services was a positive predictor. Implications are discussed. (Publisher abstract modified)
