The Puente Project
Puente’s goal is to provide students with a strong academic foundation and the support needed in order to be successful at San Diego Mesa College and beyond.

Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOPS) is a state funded program designed to provide counseling, retention, and support services to incoming and returning students.

STAR provides students opportunities for academic development, assists with basic college requirements, and serves to motivate students towards the successful completion of their postsecondary education.

Under this program, individuals meeting specified requirements can apply to have a deportation action deferred for two years, subject to renewal for an additional two years. Students under DACA are considered by DHS to be lawfully present in the United States during the period of deferred action.
For more information, visit the Financial Aid Calfornia Dream Act webpage.
