As a Mesa College student, you and a Counselor will create an education plan that will live in the My Planner section of your mySDCCD portal, which is a personalized list of courses you have chosen based on your academic goals and requirements. Your education plan will provide you with a tentative timeline to completion. You will refer to your education plan as a guide throughout your time at Mesa so you can stay focused and on track toward your goals.
If you are or intend to enroll in a certificate or degree program at Mesa College, we strongly recommend that you meet regularly with a counselor to discuss your long-term plans. We're here for you in more ways than one. Our services are available in person and virtually to meet your needs.
