New and Returning Students

As of May 20, 2022 (the Summer Semester) we are no longer requiring students to test weekly or show vaccination status.  For questions, please contact the Mendocino College COVID-19 Response team at, or 707-467-1002.

If you are a new student to Mendocino College, or returning after an absence of one year or more, the following are the steps to become a student.   As you go through the process of applying for admission, orientation, placement, counseling and beginning coursework you will become better acquainted with our college. You will find our staff is friendly and helpful and that Mendocino College instructors are knowledgeable and approachable.
