Carryover hours from the Fall to the Spring Semester (only)
If you teach in the Fall semester and have more hours than you needed to meet your Flex obligation, you may carryover those hours to the next Spring semester in that same academic year. Record those extra hours on your fall MyFlex transcript. Please read and follow the step-by-step instructions for carrying over hours, very carefully.

- PDP is the acronym for the Professional Development Program at MiraCosta College: an effort to provide faculty with a comprehensive and systematic program of activities and resources designed to foster staff, student, and/or instructional improvement.
- The PDP Committee develops the local policies and procedures pursuant to our participation in the state's Flexible Calendar Program, a privilege afforded to community colleges whereby instructional time can be replaced by "flex" time on the academic calendar. Thus, PDP-sponsored activities are sometimes referred to as "flex" activities or activities done for "flex" credit.
- The program also sponsors workshops during flex week and throughout each semester, develops the flex calendar, maintains a library of resources and equipment for faculty use, offers funds to support travel to and participation in professional development activities, assists faculty with maintaining their flex transcripts, and provides access to other relevant resources!
