Welcome to the Transfer Center. We are here to assist you in your transfer process to the college or university of your choice. The transfer process is multifaceted and working with a counselor is important when navigating your educational plans and goals. Contact our office for an appointment once you have matriculated by completing a MiraCosta College application, English and math placement tests, online orientation, and online advisement.
