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.
