New Student Advising

All new students are highly encouraged to meet with an advisor prior to starting at Mesa Community College. All new-to-college students - students with no prior or university credits - will be required to meet with an Academic Advisor in order to register for classes for most programs of study. You  can fulfill this requirement in two different ways:

  1. Attend a Thunderbird Experience: New Student Advising Session (Southern and Dobson Campus only)

  2. Individually meet with an Academic Advisor by visiting the Enrollment Center (Southern and Dobson Campus) or Enrollment Services (Red Mountain Campus)

Thunderbird Experience: New Student Advising

Available for Southern and Dobson campus students, this is a group advising session that allows you to meet with other students and discuss important aspects of college success. You will be introduced to the programs MCC offers, various resources available to you as a student, discuss important policies, and register for classes with the assistance of an advisor.
