Start college on the right foot with CRUISE, an onboarding program that helps new students transition to Mesa during their first year. The program will guide you to on-campus resources and introduce you to the many opportunities, programs, and people available to help you excel in all areas of your academic and personal growth.

CRUISE sessions are open to all new, incoming students who recently graduated high school or have not attended college in the last three years. Whether you are transitioning from Continuing Education, are a current or past member of the Armed Forces, or are an adult learner who has yet to attend college, we encourage all new students to participate in CRUISE and the opportunity to connect with fellow incoming Mesa students.
As a CRUISE participant, you will have access to a Peer Navigator, a student like yourself who has received specialized training to support you during your academic year at Mesa. Providing assistance through mentoring, monthly contacts, workshops, and events, the Peer Navigators are here to support your success and help you find your community on Mesa's campus.Learn more about Mesa's Peer Navigators
