Enrollment Sessions

What is an Enrollment Session?

If you want help with the process of signing up for classes online, we recommend that you make an appointment to attend an Enrollment Session. Your appointment will start with a brief overview from counseling staff, to help you select the right classes. Next, you will be directed to open computers where you can register for classes via your SURF account. If you encounter any difficulty or have questions, staff from Counseling, Financial Aid, and other offices will be available to assist you. The entire process will take about 1 - 1 1/2 hours. Prior to attending an enrollment session, we recommend that your familiarize yourself with SURF (MiraCosta's online enrollment system) by reviewing the SURF tutorials found at http://tinyurl.com/surftutorials.

The next Enrollment Sessions will be offered at the following locations and times (by appointment only):

San Elijo Campus - TBD
Please check back for Summer/Fall 2018 Enrollment Session schedule

Oceanside Campus - TBD
Please check back for Summer/Fall 2018 Enrollment Session schedule


You do not have to wait for an enrollment session to register for classes! To check your enrollment appointment (the exact day and time you can register for classes) login to your SURF Account (miracosta.edu/surf) and at the top left click on Main Menu > Self Service > Enrollment > Enrollment Appointment & Dates. You can also find a helpful step-by-step guide at miracosta.edu/ready2register. We recommend registering for classes on the day of your enrollment appointment because classes fill up fast!

If you plan to register on your own, we highly recommend that you meet with a counselor, to get help selecting your classes.  Counseling appointments are typically booked up several weeks prior to registration. However, drop-in counseling is available on a first-come, first-served basis during designated drop-in hours.  Drop-in times can be found via Facebook under MiraCosta College Counseling or on Twitter and Instagram as @MCCCOUNSELING.
