Student Success Program

Welcome            About BSI           Students            Professional Development         FIGs       


MiraCosta’s Student Success Program in partnership with California’s Basic Skills Initiative (BSI) is dedicated  to improving  the success and persistence rates of students at MiraCosta College. The Student Success Committee provides leadership for the various pilot projects funded through BSI  as well as advocates for the Basic Skills Mission of community colleges. On a broader scale, the committee promotes campus-wide engagement in support of student success, investigates and encourages research-based instructional and support service best practice, and sponsors many opportunities for professional development activities for faculty and staff.


The mission of the Student Success Committee is to facilitate student academic development through inclusive, accessible, and innovative instructional programs, student support services, and partnerships that are campus wide and institutionally sustained.


Several innovative programs have evolved through our efforts, including:


The First Year Experience Program (FYE)

Learning Communities

Noncredit to Credit Transition Program (NC2C)

Supporting Students

I am so excited for the future.  I hope one day my story will inspire other students including single moms to come back to school and work toward making their dreams come true.”
