4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: My favorite part of studying at Mira Costa is the amount of teachers that come from the surrounding universities to teach there part time. At Mira Costa, you really are getting the same education you would at University, except it's cheaper (and some of the credits don't transfer).

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: My financial aide that i have received has helped out a lot. This semester it came after i enrolled and paid for my books so that was a little difficult but other than that it has helped me a lot.

3 College Junior

Student Body: There is a ride range of diversity. I think every one is accepting to other people of different diversities. Mira costa is a small and friendly school, and from what i have experienced everyone seems to get along with everyone fairly well.

3 College Student

Career Services: I really don't know much about the post-grad opportunities.

4 College Student

Academic Flexibility: Overall its been very easy to find classes that match my schedule.

3 College Student

Student Body: Not a whole lot of diversity as far as the students.

3 College Student

Tuition & Financial Aid: The financial aide process was rather difficult to understand due to there only being an office at one of the campuses.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: The best of their ability to help you!

Career Services: They truly go over all of the options

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: It's ok, it could be faster but considering the amount of people using it, it's fair.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: I spend a lot of times in the library and it's amazing

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: The professors really put in the time, and if the students do as well, everyone will be ok

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: Major!

Many classes that I need are available

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Get your paperwork in on time, and you will be ok

3 College Junior

Online Courses: I have only taken one online course in my whole time at MiraCosta, and I personally prefer a classroom setting, but for anyone who have more of an interest in online courses, the only difference is the inability to constantly interact with your professor. I had a difficult time just reading all of the lectures in comparison to hearing it in a classroom. This is my own personal preference, and I believe the online course are just as great, but it just wasn't for me.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: I never had a problem with the computer labs, printing, network connection. I always felt I could rely on the computers to work properly, never had any complaints.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: All resources at MiraCosta in general are pretty decent and I would not say that one bad experience would replace all the good experiences I had when utilizing those resources. I have to say, the library is one of the main areas I spent most of my time at, and they have absolutely the best resources there, I can not emphasize enough on how much the free tutoring there can be such an advantage, especially if you may be struggling with a subject.

3 College Junior

Career Services: I personally have spent a minimal amount of time at the Career Center at MiraCosta, but when I did check out what they had been offering there, I felt it was a bit of a struggle to receive information that suited me. Last time I visited the Career Center, I was interested in applying for an on-campus job, but I received vague instructions, and found out through students or anyone who was not in the Career Center about the requirements necessary for applying for a job on campus. It was a bit confusing, but I eventually found out what was necessary to apply.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I have always utilized FAFSA associated with MiraCosta and it has helped me attend classes that I could not financially afford otherwise. I believe MiraCosta is reasonable with the cost of tuition and extremely helpful when trying to reach out to students about their financial aid, scholarship, or loan resources.

Campus Resources: Just OK, I have not had time to explore all the resources.

2 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: The RN program itself is bad, BUt my other courses have been good as far as scheduling.

4 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I have received a good amount of help from financial aid. However, they do take WAY to long to process anything.

2 College Senior

Career Services: There is no help with RN positions. It took a previous classmate 8 months to get a job with no help from the program.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: All my professors have been fantastic. Up until the RN program, They are Ok.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: They make it very hard in areas that are not important and cause too much stress to function normally. They are too busy trying to make it a "Difficult challenge" rather than focusing on the information we really need to know to give excellent patient care but also pass the NCLEX and the important skills we need to be practicing.
