CTE Transitions (formerly known as Tech Prep)

CTE Transitions identifies high school courses comparable to MiraCosta College courses and creates articulation agreements between them. These agreements allow a student who receives a B or better in an articulated course at their high school to earn college credit at MiraCosta without paying any tuition or fees. Students must complete a MiraCosta College application and Petition for College Credit form; necessary for receiving their college credit. Credit is applied to the students' MiraCosta College transcript one semester after finishing the high school course. See the High Schools with Articulations page to find out what articulated courses are available at your high school so that you can receive credit at MiraCosta College...for free!


CTE Transitions programs are funded by the California Department of Education, Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Improvement Act of 2006.
