The Progam

ME 1st is a new and special program at Chaffey College designed to help new students start college right. Research shows that students who master their core competencies, like math and English earlier in their academic experience are more likely to complete their program of study and their goals. ME 1st gives you the opportunity to receive privileged registration opportunities for 3 semesters if you have an eligible assessment/placement recommendation for English 475 and Math 410.

Eligible students will be invited to attend an information session, where they will receive further information on the program requirements. Students who agree to take math and English for 3 semesters and maintain a full-time load will be granted early registration, which will help them get all of the classes they need to graduate!
