The Chabot College MESA and TRiO-STEM program offers academic support and career exploration for STEM majors planning to transfer to four-year colleges. We offer academic counseling, priority registration, tutoring, speakers from STEM industries, conferences, and campus visits as well as information on the transfer process, financial aid, and internships. (MESA is open to undocumented students as well.)

To be eligible, students must:

  1. be in a STEM major;
  2. be intending to transfer to a 4-year university; and
  3. demonstrate an economic and/or educational disadvantage (generally our students are first generation in their family to earn a bachelor’s degree and/or are eligible for financial aid.)
