Private College/Out-of-State University Transfer

MiraCosta College also has agreements with many private colleges and universities within California and agreements with some out-of-state universities. Most of these universities accept all courses designated as UC transferable, and many accept completion of CSU GE-Breadth (Plan B) or IGETC (Plan C) in lieu of their own general education requirements. However, graduation requirements and coursework used to complete a major may vary significantly with requirements at the California State University (CSU) or University of California (UC) systems. Some California and out-of-state private colleges and universities accept the Associate Degree for Transfer for specific majors in lieu of major and general education requirements.
