Early Graduation Opportunities

The first step is to apply. You can apply online by clicking here. Once you've submitted your application, you're automatically accepted.

After you apply and before you will be able to take the math and English assessment tests, you must complete the Online Orientation.

You may access the Orientation at any time by using the following information. Please note, this is a generic login for any student, and is not in any way associated with your own personal information. Please contact the Testing Office with any questions, or if you are having difficulty logging in.

The orientation will help you learn about the ins and outs of navigating our college community to be successful, like class registration and college policies and procedures. You'll receive essential information on certificate, degree, and general transfer information.

Don't forget to print out, complete and bring the Orientation Learning Outcomes form with you to take your assessment tests. They won't let you take the assessments without it.

Once you've completed the online orientation and filled out the Orientation Learning Outcomes form, stop by the Testing Office in the I400 Building, room I4-201 to take your assessment tests. Appointments are no longer necessary and testing is done on a walk-in basis. These tests will assess your skill level in math and English so that you are placed in the correct math and English class. Doing this will ensure that you will be off to the right start here at Mesa.

Once you've completed the math and English assessment tests, you will be given a worksheet to assist you during the First Semester Planning Workshop. Fill out the worksheet as you watch the First Semester Planning Workshop online and turn in your completed worksheet to the Testing Office within 7-10 business days. The First Semester Planning Workshop is provided online to assist students with developing a first semester advisement plan. Students will receive a general overview of college resources and learn how to interpret their English and Math Placement Test results. Attending the workshop and completing and turning in the worksheet serves as the final step to your Matriculation process, and can grant you priority enrollment for subsequent semesters.

Once you've completed Steps 1-4 and once your registration appointment starts, enroll in your classes online at Reg-e. Once you've registered, don't forget to pay your registration fees and your Student Health fee by the deadline you'll be given to avoid being dropped from your classes.

Information for Early High School Graduates
