First Year Forward

First Year Forward (FYF) is a program designed to provide a smooth transition for Oceanside High, El Camino High, Ocean Shores, and Clair Burgener seniors planning to attend MiraCosta College. Students will be provided with dedicated academic counselors, peer mentors, and on-going support to ensure a successful first year experience. FYF highly encourages students to sign up for a specialized Counseling 100 course that is offered in their first semester to further support their transition into college.
