  • Official transcript evaluation is currently taking 3 months on average.

 

Clearing Prerequisites Quickly:

 

Discussing Prerequisites with a counselor:

  • Email the counseling email with your student id#
  • Attach your unofficial Prerequisite "Proof" (ex. transcript(s), AP scores)
  • State the class(es) you're requesting to take & the reason you believe you've met the prerequisite
  • State the semester you plan to enroll in the classes
  • Attach the Proof of Prerequisite Form with all of the information filled out
  • Advisories are 'suggested' but will not limit your ability to register for a course
  • Prerequisites are checked & enforced
  • You do not need to turn in anything for Advisories just Prerequisites

 

ALWAYS Include: Full Name, Student ID#, Specific Reason for contact (unofficial transcripts as needed).

Send an email with ALL required information to miracoun@sdccd.edu allow 3-4 business days for a reply. The more information you provide in your initial email, the more efficient the process will be.

 

The counselors will be available to answer emails during our regular office hours: Monday/Tuesday: 8am-7pm, Wednesday/Thursday: 8am-6pm, and Friday: 8am-3pm.

 

Forms are now being turned in online here. Videos on the Forms website fully explain the process; however, you may need to discuss specific forms with a counselor before submission. You may also email counseling as necessary for instruction/help for filling out the forms.

Our 1 hour appointments are done via Zoom. You can schedule a 1 hour long-term education plan appointment on our Scheduling Appointments Online page. Here is a link to a Zoom Student Guide.
