Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, the District's highest priority has continued to be the health and safety of its employees and students.  Update: In recognition of the current spike in cases largely due to the Omicron variant, the San Diego Community College District has decided to work remotely through January 28th, 2022.  
In keeping with this, Mesa College will temporarily provide student services remotely during the month of January, beginning Monday, January 3, 2022 through Friday, January 28, 2022.  We expect to reopen for in-person services on Monday, January 31st, 2022.
At this time, CARE will continue to provide full assistance remotely. Counseling appointments and workshops will continue to be offered via Zoom or phone call.
