How to complete my Spartan Prep

Spartan Prep is an online guide for students to complete Online Orientation and Advisement, and an example First Semester Education Plan. Students will be introduced to college terminology, academic programs, and student support services, along with planning tools that will help students succeed at MiraCosta College.

Four steps to complete the Spartan Prep:
