The Institute for International Perspectives (IIP) endeavors to internationalize MiraCosta College by supporting international students, administering study abroad programs, and promoting international cultural activities. The IIP supports international students enrolled on an F-1 visa in the college's academic programs and the full-time intensive English Language Institute (ELI) program offered through Community Services. This school is authorized under Federal law to enroll nonimmigrant alien students. International students with an F-1 or M-1 visa must contact the IIP and review the admission requirements found under the Admissions & Enrollment section of this catalog before enrolling at MiraCosta.

The IIP also offers international study programs. Current study abroad programs are semester-long requiring full-time enrollment. Study abroad programs offer only courses approved in accordance with Title 5 of the California Code of Regulations and taught by faculty meeting the minimum qualifications for providing instruction.
