Getting on Base:
We have been recently informed that, due to heightened security on the base, all non-affiliated civilians must now undergo a background check in order for the Government to grant you clearance and authority to enter the base and attend your class. The background check will be conducted by the military.
If you do not possess a United States Government Common Access Card (CAC) or Department of Defense Form 1173 Identification and Privilege Card, you must provide a state issued identification card or passport and submit to a background investigation by the Miramar Provost Marshal's Office to attend classes at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar (MCAS). You will need to complete a Background Check and Installation Access Application form, which can be obtained from Student Web Services under Key Resources at: http://studentweb.sdccd.edu. To ensure that your form is processed in a timely manner, and that your clearance is established, your application should be turned in to MCAS's Pass and Identification Office located at the Miramar Way Main Gate (Bldg #6200) by March 25, 2013, or you will not be permitted to attend class.
Once the form has been submitted to the base and your background check is complete, Miramar College will notify you of your clearance by email no later than March 29, 2013.
Thank you for your cooperation as we try to meet the new requirements for non-affiliated civilians requesting access to military installations. If you have any questions, please contact the Dean's Office at: 619-388-7873.
