Online Education Plans, Governance, & Accreditation



Online Education at MiraCosta College is integrated into the governance system in multiple ways. The Academic Affairs Committee is responsible for the development of 3-year Online Education Plans. The Courses & Programs Committee is responsible for AP 4105, the administrative procedure on distance education, and its associated Courses & Programs Curriculum Committee is responsible for curricular approval of distance education courses.
