Common reasons students are not able to register for a class:
If there are multiple terms available make sure that you have selected the term you
really wanted to register for!
Our SURF enrollment system always enforces all prerequisites. If you have taken the prerequisite at a school other than MiraCosta College you can ask for your prerequisite to be cleared by submitting our Prerequisite/Priority Registration form and attaching the transcripts to the form (unofficial transcripts are fine). Clearing your prerequisite takes up to 5 business days so please plan ahead!
You are allowed to take most classes only once, however, there are some instances where you can repeat a course:
- If you earn a grade of F, D, or NP you are allowed to repeat the course.
- The Maximum number of times (including W grades) you may take a course is 3.
- Once you earn a C or better in the course you are not permitted to take it again.
- If the course is designated as repeatable you may be able to take the course again.
