On Saturday, March 9, 2024 from 8:30 a.m. to noon, Mesa College will host “Jumpstart Your Success.” Jumpstart is a FREE community event for all prospective Mesa College students. Students and their families can learn about Mesa College programs and services, including the San Diego Promise, which offers free tuition to eligible students.

“This is a great event for prospective students and family members as they explore Mesa College.  When they visit us during JumpStart, they will experience all the enriching opportunities we offer through academic and student support services, such as access to free tuition, university transfer options and work force development,”  Victoria Kerba Miller, Dean of Student Affairs. “We have current students, staff and faculty on hand to provide encouragement and support our students’ in succeeding on their journey here at Mesa.”

During the festivities, students will “get a feel for a day in the life of a Mesa College student” through workshops that highlight campus academic and student support resources, including financial aid and the Honors Program. Students will be able to interact with Peer Navigators, Student Ambassadors and the Associated Students.  Entertainment will include Mesa College’s World Music, Dance and Jazz Quartet. FREE lunch will be provided (while supplies last). A special track for students interested in transitioning from the College of Continuing Education will also be offered.

Students attending Jumpstart will have their names entered in the opportunity drawing to win one of TWO $500 scholarships to be applied toward enrollment fees during their first semester at Mesa College. Recipients must be graduating high school seniors or students transferring from the College of Continuing Education to enter, and be present to win.
