MAAP Mission Statement

The Mesa Academics and Athletics Program (MAAP) at San Diego Mesa College empowers student-athletes to identify and achieve their educational, career, athletic and personal goals. The support program guides student-athletes to obtain an educational degree while meeting California community college and/or transfer eligibility requirements. MAAP aims to motivate student-athletes to succeed in the classroom, the athletic arena and in the community. 

MAAP Goals

  • To assist student-athletes in the identification of educational, career, athletic and personal goals
  • To empower student-athletes to reach academic, career, athletic and personal success
  • To increase retention, graduation and transfer rates of student athletes
  • To encourage each student-athlete to develop independence, self-advocacy and to mature mentally emotionally, physically and athletically.
  • To create an environment within the intercollegiate athletic program that promotes academic achievement.
  • To provide CCCAA, NCAA, and NAIA resources.
  • To maximize the academic potential of student-athletes by providing an atmosphere that enhances learning skills, career development, and personal development. This will be done by encouraging the student-athletes to:

Enroll in a Personal Growth course, utilize free tutoring services, and use the student services on campus (i.e. Transfer Center, Career Center, Counseling and others).


1) MAAP or General Drop-in Counseling (i.e. quick questions, abbreviated Ed Plans, petitions, basic eligibility)

2) 1 hour MAAP Counseling Appointments (i.e. long term planning, AA, transfer, in-depth CCCAA/NCAA.NAIA eligibility, personal and career counseling)

3) MAAP Hot Spots for Student-Athletes

This is a Counseling drop-in service just for student-athletes in the Exercise Science Building (i.e. quick questions, certain petitions, pre-requisites, next semester planning)

Summer Hot Spots are coming ... More to come, stay tuned.
