Students who have participated regularly in these workshops have higher rates of success, in addition to building their learning community - students that support each other to succeed. Check out the Spring 2018 Academic Excellence Workshop schedule.
  • The Precalculus Readiness Program (PREP) is currently being restructured.

Within the STEM Center, you will find the MESA Center, here to encourage students in the math, science, and engineering fields. We have free tutors, Academic Excellence Workshops and many resources such as books, computers and most importantly, other students like you working on math and science in a comfortable, casual atmosphere. The MESA Center welcomes all Cabrillo students taking transfer level math and science courses. Extra benefits are provided to those students who qualify as MESA members. To explore your eligibility for MESA membership, sign up for an appointment to see our MESA Counselor, using the binder by Rm 832B.

What is MESA?

MESA stands for Mathematics, Engineering and Science Achievement.

The community college MESA program provides academic support for students interested in math, science or engineering with the goal of transferring to a four-year institution. Some of the ways we support students:

  • A Study Center 
  • Academic Excellence Workshops
  • Academic, career and financial aid advising 
  • Transfer assistance 
  • Assistance in applying for scholarships, internships and research experiences for undergraduates
  • Field trips 
  • Related enrichment programs 

Cabrillo College was the first MESA program at the community college level, and has been in existence since 1988. MESA programs exist at about one third of the community colleges in California to support low-income high need students in math-based majors to a successful university transfer.
