MiraCosta College wants you to achieve your educational goals and Spartan Prep (matriculation) is where you get started! Students new to college who plan to transfer, earn an associate degree, earn a vocational certificate, improve basic skills, or are undecided on a goal need to matriculate. Spartan Prep is also helpful for students who are returning from a long absence.
Spartan Prep gets you on the right track and keeps you going with the information you need to arrive at your educational destination. Spartan Prep includes two components:
- Online Orientation introduces you to terminology, academic programs and student services and gives you planning tools you'll need to succeed at MiraCosta College.
- First Semester Ed Plan walks students through an excercise in picking classess based off a specific GE pattern.
When Should I Complete Spartan Prep?
Complete Spartan Prep after submitting an application to attend MiraCosta College and before registering for classes for the first time. If you cannot complete the process before registration, you may still register for classes for which you meet the prerequisites, but do plan to complete Spartan Prep before you register for your next semester.
