Students who have graduated from a U.S. high school within the last 10 years will receive their placement levels based upon high school performance information that is provided on the application for admission. The new college application (CCCApply) will identify English and math course that students can enroll in using prior high school history. Students will report cumulative, unweighted high school GPA, courses completed and grades received in English and math courses.
Students who have graduated from a U.S. high school more than 10 years ago, completed the GED, or HiSet exam are eligible for this assessment. The Placement Assistant will identify courses that students can enroll in using prior academic history. Students will report cumulative, unweighted high school GPA and their completed English and math courses. Based on the information reported, students will receive an English and math placement milestone.

The Online Orientation is one of the steps in matriculating to Mesa and is designed to cover important information about Mesa College to students. Once the Orientation is completed, there is a certificate that is e-mailed confirming the completion. This certificate can be forwarded to the Assessment Office via e-mail including the Mesa Student I.D. number to clear this matriculation step. You can e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
