Abstract:

College education can provide job opportunities, knowledge, skills, and personal growth. Migrant students who want to go to college should let others know of their interest and learn all they can from others' experiences by talking to family, counselors, and others who have attended college. Starting early and not giving up are important. Taking challenging courses in high school and taking the Scholastic Assessment Test (sat) and American College Testing (act) are important early steps. Family support can be gained by sharing plans and information with them. Teachers and counselors may help with family support. Investigating college programs involves deciding between large and small schools, 2-year and 4-year programs, and commuting and residing on campus, as well as choosing a major. Visiting campuses gives one an idea of what the college experience is like. There are a variety of financial aids: scholarships and grants, work-study programs, and loans. There are also several programs just for migrant farmworker students. Once at college, preparing for and attending classes, seeking help and friends when needed, scheduling time, and visualizing oneself as a graduating student are helpful tips for success. (Td).
