New students must complete the Online Orientation and provide the certificate of completion prior to receiving an educational plan. The orientation is designed to familiarize new students with important resources available to them at Miramar College. Please note, the orientation will only allow you to input 9 digits of your student ID. Please leave off the FIRST digit of your student ID, and provide the last nine digits.
To complete the Placement Assistant, students will need to know their College Student ID Number. After completing the placement, talk with a counselor to discuss the options available based of the placement you received.
The Placement Assistant is intended for students who have not been placed for English and math yet. In most cases, students are placed while applying to Miramar. You may need to complete the Placement Assistant if:
You have no milestone levels
You were in high school while you applied to Miramar, and have since graduated
You incorrectly input your placement information when you applied (such as wrong GPA).
Note, you should reach out to the Assessment email if this is the case, as you may need to provide additional information.
The Placement Assistant can be accessed below. Students who have completed math and English courses also do NOT need to take the Placement Assistant.
After completing the Placement, students will receive an email in 1-2 business days that contains their milestones/placement levels.
Please note that the Placement Assistant does not let students resume, or back to change an answer. Plan to complete the Placement Assistant in one sitting. The Placement Assistant will provide an opportunity to review and change answers before the final submission.
Students who have not received Milestones, or applied before they graduated may want to complete the Placement Assistant. Most students are assessed for English & math during the application, and should therefore have their Milestones on record.
ELAC- English Language Acquisition
If a student has completed the Placement Assistant and is given English courses, they may still opt to take the ELAC assessment.
- ELAC assessment is offered through an online placement tool, and can be completed from home.
- Beginning level students are not required to take the ELAC assessment. Students may choose to enroll in beginning ELAC classes without taking the assessment.
After completing ELAC GO, students will receive an email in 1-2 business days that contains their milestones/placement levels.
Please note that ELAC GO does not let students resume, or back to change an answer. Plan to complete placement in one sitting.
- Upon completion of the Placement Assistant/ELAC assessment, you will receive a copy of your placement levels. Your Placement levels will be posted within 2-3 business days to your student records. You may also view your placement levels through your mySDCCD portal.
- Once completed, speak with a counselor to form an education plan, and discuss your placement.
