Acceptance into the program is necessary before U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Form I-20 is issued by the college.

Academic Programs

San Diego Miramar College does not offer an intensive program of English as a Second Language.

San Diego Miramar College offers lower division coursework towards a vocational certificate, a two-year associate degree, and preparation for a four-year bachelor's degree or graduate program.

If you already possess a baccalaureate or college degree or the equivalent (completion of about 60 units), you may be considered beyond the course offerings of San Diego Miramar College and are encouraged to apply to a four-year college or university. Exceptions may be granted for students declaring a new major or needing additional lower-division courses.
