MiraCosta College is a great place to begin a higher education adventure! MiraCosta College offers associate degrees, preparation for university transfer, career and workforce training, basic skills, a high school diploma program, and a wide variety of community services educational opportunities.

We are particularly proud of our outstanding faculty. Both full-time and associate faculty members are academic discipline experts, and they are dedicated to providing individual attention to their students. This dedication is evident in the successes of MiraCosta’s transfer students, who move on to four-year institutions and are often more academically successful than students who begin their college careers at those institutions.

Whether you are a first year student seeking to advance in your current job, or have made the decision to transition into another career, let MiraCosta College be there with you on your journey. Our campus locations in Oceanside and Cardiff-by-the-Sea along with our off-campus sites in Encinitas, Camp Pendleton and Carlsbad, will allow you to attend when it's convenient for you—early mornings, days, evenings, or weekends. Plus, MiraCosta College offers a robust online program.

MiraCosta College is committed to your success, both academically and personally, and we hope you will take advantage of the wonderful services available to reach your goals.
