myEdPlan is MiraCosta’s online degree audit and student education planning tool for counselors and students. myEdPlan allows counselors and students to generate degree audits which show progress toward satisfying degree, certificate, and general education requirements in the student’s declared program of study.
Using myEdPlan, counselors can create comprehensive semester-by-semester education plans which students can access online, 24x7, via SURF. These online education plans can be referenced by students each semester as they plan their class schedules, and can also be used to track individual student progress toward completing educational goals.
Schedule an appointment with your counselor to develop an approved semester-by-semester abbreviated or comprehensive online education plan.
