What assessments does MiraCosta offer?
For Math, English and ESL placement, we offer Guided Self-Placement Tools. Many students will be eligible for placement using Multiple Measures (high school GPA and coursework) submitted through the MiraCosta application. Students may also submit their High School Transcripts or complete a Multiple Measures Self-Report Form and submit this to email@example.com.
I already hold a college degree. Can I enroll in a course without completing the placement process?
Placement is not required for enrollment unless the course has a prerequisite that needs to be met via the placement process or prior coursework. For more information on submitting transcripts from other institutions, visit our Admissions and Records website.
What if I am a student with a disability needing an accommodation?
If you have a disability needing an accommodation, you may wish to contact the Student Accessibility Services Office (Rm 3006 at the Oceanside campus, x6658).
Can I complete the placement process remotely?
Yes! For the spring 2022 semester, all testing services are available to students remotely. We look forward to assisting you! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 760-795-6685.
