Since 1969, San Diego Miramar College has trained more than 10,000 law enforcement and firefighter professionals. Since those early days, in addition to our well-respected public safety graduates, highly skilled diesel, automotive and FAA-certified aviation technicians, EMTs, biotechnicians, paralegal, computer and child development professionals have walked across our commencement stage.
Add to those numbers the many thousands of Miramar College students who have successfully transferred to four-year colleges and universities to continue their higher education and you can see why we are proud of our legacy. If you are equally proud to have graduated or transferred from Miramar College, join the Alumni Association. If you attended Miramar College, we'd like to hear from you!
