Welcome to the San Diego Community College District

The San Diego Community College District is committed to an educational environment that is free of discrimination. Lack of English speaking skills and/or visual or hearing impairment will not be a barrier to admission or participation in college programs

Before you can register for classes, you must fill out a CCCApply college application to San Diego City, Mesa or Miramar College. Completing the online application is easy and free. (Click here for step by step instructions.)

At the bottom of the page you will see links to all three college applications. When you apply to one college, you can still register for classes at all three colleges.

You will receive an email confirmation when your application is processed. For more information about applying please visit our admissions page
