The Online Orientation is one of the steps in matriculating to Mesa and is designed to cover important information about Mesa College to students. Once the Orientation is completed, there is a certificate that is e-mailed confirming the completion. This certificate can be forwarded to the Assessment Office via e-mail including the Mesa Student I.D. number to clear this matriculation step. You can e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
English LANGUAGE ACQUISITION (ELAC)
If English is not your native language, you may benefit from taking an ELAC class before a college-level English class. If so, the ELAC exam is your next step. It is a timed exam consisting of 75 questions within a span of 45 minutes designed to help non-native English speaking students select appropriate ELAC classes. Please see our Schedule for more information, and please review Sample Test questions before taking the exam.
