Steps to Enroll

Enrolling in classes requires three steps:

  1. Apply for admission as a noncredit student.
  2. Retrieve your SURF ID (student ID), and set the password.
  3. Register (enroll) for the class.

1) Apply for Admission as Noncredit Student

If you were not enrolled in a NONCREDIT class during Spring 2015 at MiraCosta, you will need to complete the Noncredit Application.  (Note that credit and noncredit have different applications.) Please read and follow all the instructions on the application page.

It can take 3-4 days for applications to be processed.

If you have problems with the application process, please contact the Noncredit Support Staff at
760.795.8710 for assistance.  You can also register in person at the Community Learning Center at 1831 Mission Avenue, Oceanside, 92058.

2) Retrieve SURF (Student) ID

Once your application is processed you will need to retrieve your SURF ID and Password by going to the SURF website.  You will be asked a series of questions which will allow you to obtain your SURF ID and set up a password.

If you did not submit your social security number, we will assign and mail a substitute number that will be needed to obtain your SURF ID NUMBER online - OR - you may come to the Community Education office and show a picture ID card to obtain your SURF ID NUMBER.

Once you have your SURF ID and password, you can register for the class (enroll).

3) Attend Orientation (Adult High School and ESL Only)

4) Register - Enroll for Class Using SURF

Having obtained your SURF ID and password, you are ready to register for your class. Be sure that you are registering for the appropriate class/section number.  (Late registration is at the discretion of the instructor and dean and on a space available basis.)
