“MiraCosta College has been a big part of my life. In high school my average grades limited me from going to the universities I really wanted to attend. MiraCosta gave me a second chance to prove that I could do better. It also saved me a lot of money in my first two years of college. I liked the small class size and wonderful professors who really care about students at MiraCosta. I transferred to University of California San Diego and received a Bachelor’s degree in Economics and Accounting. Now, I work for a really large investment firm in Malta. Goal accomplished, thank you MiraCosta.”

My last year at MiraCosta, I applied to four different UC schools including UC Irvine (UCI) that offered me a guaranteed admission through the TAGat MiraCosta College. I was excited when I received an admission from UC Berkeley, my first choice university.” Mary graduated from MiraCosta and UC Berkeley with a Bachelor’s degree in Economics.
