Time to pick my class! by Amandine

At the end of each semester, we have to enroll for the next semester and pick our classes.

What classes should I take?

It is not an obligation but it is recommended for every new and continuig student to see a counselor. The counselor will help you plan for your next semesters.

You can take any classes that you want. The best is to take the classes that you NEED to tranfer or graduate and once you know your major and where you want to tranfer, it is so easy!

You pick your classes from Plan A if you are not planning to transfer and only want to graduate from MiraCosta
You pick your classes from Plan B if you want to transfer to a CSU.
You pick your classes from Plan C if you are not sure either you want to transfer to a UC or a CSU.

Now I know what classes to take, how do I enroll?

Use the online SURF catalog here  or the paper catalog that you can find on campus to know when and what time the class is starting and also the name of your teacher.

Step 1. Search your classes by subject, for example: art

Then a list of classes is going show. Here they are all the same, except the day, time and teacher.

For example, I want to choose the first class

Step 2. Click on select.
Then you are enrolled!! Re-do the exact same thing to select your other class and make that there is no time conflict between your classes.

If you don't want to take the class you enrolled anymore or you want to take a different one, you can drop it.
In SURF, click on My Academics > Drop > Select the class you want to drop > Finish.

If you still need help, the International Office can help you.
