  3. Once your transcripts have arrived, request that your transcripts be evaluated for course equivalencies.

How can I make an appointment to see a counselor?

45 minute appointments with a counselor are also available for more in-depth counseling sessions related to academic planning or to address complex questions or issues. Appointments will be conducted by phone or by video conference. A computer or smart device will be needed for video conference appointments. Appointments can be made one week in advance but will be limited during all class registration periods.

Clearing Prerequisites

An email can be sent to the Prerequisite Evaluators at our District Office prereqinquiry@sdccd.edu.  Please include your student ID number, contact information and the specific course you want to enroll in. Please attach an electronic copy of your transcripts which verifies completed coursework.

Alternatively, students who have taken courses at another college or university may see a drop-in counselor with their transcripts.  You may request to see a drop-in counselor by calling or emailing the Counseling Office at 619-388-2672 or sdmesafollowup@gmail.com.  Be sure to have an electronic copy of your transcript available.

Have my transcripts arrived?

An email can be sent to the San Diego Community College District Office of the Registrar at tinquiry@sdccd.edu.

Have my transcripts been evaluated/posted?

It is the student's responsibility to request that their transcripts be evaluated for degree and transfer applicability. A Counselor or Counseling Support Staff must submit a Request for Transcript Evaluation form which will be forwarded to the Evaluators. Please note that the evaluation process can take 60-90 business days. 

Students may also submit a Request for Transcript Evaluation online on the District’s Forms and Documents website.

Can I see a counselor on a drop-in basis?

Counselors are also available for brief advisement sessions, commonly referred to as Drop-in counseling. Drop-ins are 10-15 minute brief counseling sessions via phone (and/or Zoom) and are intended to address quick questions specific to a student’s academic record. Drop-in counseling is available same-day, and a counselor will contact you via phone or email within a 2-3 hour time frame.  

To sign up for drop-in counseling, please contact the counseling department by phone at 619-388-2672 or email: sdmesafollowup@gmail.com

Veteran students receiving benefits can schedule an appointment to meet with a counselor through the Counseling Office by calling 619-388-2672 for assistance.

I have a general question but I don't live in the area, could I send my question via email?

Yes, you may send your general question to mesacoun@sdccd.edu.
