One-hour appointments are typically utilized to create your comprehensive education plan, discuss transfer and career planning, submit financial aid appeals, and more.


You are eligible for a counseling appointment if you meet the following criteria:

  • Are currently enrolled in at least one class at Mesa,
  • Have completed a semester of college coursework, and
  • Have all transcripts from outside of California received and evaluated, if applicable. Note: Transcript evaluation is a two step process. Official transcripts must be sent to the district (step 1). Upon receipt of transcripts, an evaluation must then be requested (step 2).
