2019 Student Success Scorecard

MiraCosta College

MiraCosta College was founded in 1934 in Oceanside. It was the second community college to be established in San Diego County. In 1960, voters approved a separate community college district and a bond issue to provide funding for a new college campus. The district once again expanded in 1976 to include all of the North County coastal communities from Camp Pendleton to Del Mar. MiraCosta's three campuses continue to change and grow. The college has completed several large construction projects that put it on the map for its technological and arts offerings.
