Academic Advising 

MESA students are required to meet with their respective MESA academic advisor a minimum of once (1) per semester (towards the end of each semester).


MESA students complete a 1) MESA Pre-Scheduling Form and 2) MESA Report Card prior to the academic advising appointment.  Both forms are then reviewed during the appointment.


MESA students are also welcome to visit their academic advisor throughout the year for academic advising.
