Student Resources During COVID-19

THE 2021 SPRING SEMESTER

During the 2021 Spring Semester, San Diego Miramar College will continue to be on remote operations with the large majority of classes offered primarily online.

Some courses, due to their contribution to the training of essential workers, will be offered in a hybrid model.  These courses will fall under the areas of automotive technology, aviation, aviation maintenance technology, fire protection technology, EMT and medical laboratory technician training.

Since Student Services will continue providing services to students in a remote modality throughout the fall semester, here is a list of resources and information to help address any of the questions or needs that you may have throughout the Spring.
