5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: When it comes to professors and the material they teach at school, Mira Costa staff does a great job. Every single professor I had was passionate about the material they were teaching which makes engaging into the work more exciting. The faculty at my college does receive a "It's the best" option. They help you to prepare for the exams and set you up for success.

Overall Experience: The school does a great job helping the students find internships or jobs.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I mean I m only at the community college level and am only taking pre-requisits, so I mean these classes are preparing me. But I feel the work is manageable and the school helps us if we need to find internships or job opportunities. They are great with that.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I chose the "It's great" option because the school really is great. Every class that I have take has had an instructor passionate about the material they teach. I don't ever feel that I am uncomfortable in a class because of the lack of motivation. I believe this is what makes Mira Costa College unique. The reason I didn't choose, "It's the best" was because of the lack of student involvement the school puts on. I know college is not all about school spirit, but sometimes it is nice to see that and participate in that. That is why I am working hard to achieve all my needed credits, so I can transfer to a university as soon as possible.

Academic Flexibility: Mira Costa has 3 campuses, one of which is located very far from where I live. A lot of the classes that I sometimes need are either only offered at that campus or is offered on my campus, but occurs at a time that is inconvenient for me and my schedule. There is a wide range of classes, but the times that they are offered can get tricky. I have a general frustration with all colleges when it comes to transferring credits. Some colleges take some but not others, some take all or some will take none. It depends on the school. Miracosta is good about taking credits generally, but when it comes time to transfer to a four year, you have to know what school you want to go to so you take courses that will transfer to your desired school. It is not the fault of Mira Costa, but all 4 year institutions that have very specific requirements, all of which being different from the next.

Online Courses: I've taken one online class to fulfill and elective requirement. The class was easy to register for and there were emails and notifications letting me know how to access the coursework. In this class there were multiple class discussions each week, connecting the class together even though we never met. The teacher was readily available over email for questions. I personally don't like online as much because I don't feel like you remember the content as well as a normal class setting. It's a little superficial. I also have had other students plagiarize my work in class discussions which was a huge mess. But other than that, the content is usually good. The work loads can get a bit heavy since professors want you to engage.

Overall Experience: There is a vast variety of courses offered. If you want to learn about something, there is usually a course for it. The professors are very helpful. Generally their coursework is straight forward. What is on the syllabus is what is going to be taught and expected of you. There are no surprise expectations. In the beginning of the semester, you know what you'll be doing. The class size depends on the course, for instance, english is usually a small class of around 15-20 students. When you get into the more specialized and high demand classes you start seeing class sizes of 30-40 students. Many of them will drop by the end of the semester though, so you end with half that. Every teacher teaches differently, but is mostly lecture and note-taking the review for tests. Registering for classes is straightforward too.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Since Mira Costa is a 2 year college, it's main focus is to get you your general ed or help you transfer to a 4 year institution. Because this is the main goal of the school, it has many tools in place in order for you to achieve this and be successful. The value of the degree is great. The honor society is great, as it has many tools for this as well. The career center is very helpful.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I was at Mira costa to complete general ed and prepare for transfer which I have completed. The academic experience is fantastic. Most the professors understand the trials of being a college student and will aid you in any way they can to get a great grade in the class. The teachers teach at a high academic level, but keep the workloads at a doable amount. The career and counseling services at Mira Costa are wonderful. Making appointments is easy and there are people that will sit down with you for an hour and figure out your plan, draw it out for you, and give you options. Each and every professor I have run into is interested in seeing you succeed. Overall, it is a great experience and the academics are great.

Academic Flexibility: There are a number of class day/time possibilities to work with my schedule.

Online Courses: It is great. I would only say that some teachers put a little to much of a work load for online courses. Overall, very well structured and I have taken 3 years of 95% online courses.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The professors and courses are great and are applicable to the real world. The professors are from a wide variety of industries and give you great advice and guidance.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The career prospects are great. The career center prides itself on having job fairs where the employers are searching for actual future employees or interns and they are from big companies. The career center also keeps internships and job postings current and are regularly contacted for employment possibilities or internships. A degree from this school I would imagine would mean something to employers because it seems to be one of the better "community colleges" out there.

5 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: The business department is filled with professors with a variety of life experience and they are all willing to help guide you and answer any questions you may have. They are a great group and they have made the program amazing. You can tell the program and courses are made to be applicable to the real world experiences we will deal with in the business world.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: This college is the best way to enter the college experience. When you are new, you are walked through the process and guided towards the best starting classes for you, the academic advisers are amazing and well educated to be able to help you make decisions. I previously went to another school right out of high school and i just felt lost. When I came here I expected the same experience and I received the exact opposite and it has been amazing ever since. I am actually sad that I will be transferring on this fall.

5 College Junior

Online Courses: It's extremely convenient and the teachers take their time to help.
