Welcome to California State University, Chico's MESA Programs.

We invite you to learn more about our family of academic initiatives that aim to support, motivate and prepare students for success in engineering and other math-based scientific fields of study. MESA serves educationally disadvantaged students, and to the extent possible by the law, emphasizes participation by students from groups with low eligibility rates for four-year institutions. If you are interested in finding out more about our programs, please follow the links below:
