Departure: 8:30 a.m. Return: 5 p.m.

Saturday, March 20th, 2010 Offered for a limited time — don’t miss this incredible exhibit! Renoir in the 20th Century looks at the last three decades of his career when “he turned to an art that was decorative, classical, and informed by a highly personal interpretation of the Great Tradition.” Because these works do not fit into the history of high modernism, they are often misunderstood. This is the first monographic study dedicated to Renoir since the comprehensive retrospective of 1985 in Paris. And, it is the first exhibit ever mounted by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Find out how this exhibition bridges the divide that exists between art of the 19th and 20th Centuries. Other special exhibitions include American Stories: Paintings of Everyday Life (1765-1915), and Contemporary Projects 12: Robin Rhode. Additional collections at the LACMA include: African, American, Latin American, Egyptian, Islamic, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese art; art of the ancient Americas, the ancient Near East, and the Pacific; contemporary and modern art; costumes and textiles; decorative arts and design; European paintings and sculpture; German Expressionist art; Greek, Roman, and Etruscan art; prints and drawings; South and Southeast Asian art; and the Wallis Annenberg photography department. There will be a no-host lunch. Fee: $70.00 Departure #1: San Elijo Campus: 8:30 a.m. Return: 6:30 p.m. Departure #2: Oceanside Campus: 9:10 a.m. Return: 6 p.m.

Excursions Springtime in Anza-Borrego Desert Adventure

Saturday, April 10, 2010 Join photographer Terry Matsuoka as he takes us on a springtime adventure into the Anza-Borrego Desert. Enjoy the great food at Kendall’s Restaurant, the beautiful desert landscapes and a tasty trip into Julian. And if you like the idea of learning to take better pictures of wildflowers, birds and desertscapes, this is going to be the one trip you won’t want to miss! In the spring, AnzaBorrego flourishes with wild flowers that carpet parts of the desert floor with brilliant shades of purple, crimson and yellow. For those who like birdwatching, you'll find an abundance of birds unique to the desert. Capture the beauty of the desert on your camera and show off your photographic gems on our website page set up specially for those who go on this excursion. Once we have toured the beautiful spots in the desert, we will ride our luxury coach back through Julian where you can spend an hour strolling along the quaint streets full of shops or eating apple pie in this historic town. A picnic lunch from Kendall’s is included. Please wear comfortable shoes, sunscreen and/or a hat, and bring water. You do not need to bring a camera as the trip will be enjoyable even if you do not wish to take pictures. Fee: $75.00 Bus will pick up and drop off at MiraCosta College Oceanside campus, parking lot 1A only. Departure: 8 a.m. Return: 6:30 p.m.

Cinco de Mayo at Olvera Street, L.A.

Wednesday, May 5th, 2010 Enjoy a relaxed luxury coach to Olvera Street where you will be able to spend the day enjoying all the events. Olvera Street is in the oldest part of Downtown Los Angeles,  California, and is part of the  El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historic Monument. Many Latinos refer to it as “La Placita Olvera.” Olvera Street is always teeming with Mexican culture, but the historic area will be overflowing May 5th for the Cinco de Mayo fiesta. El Pueblo de Los Angeles will present traditional folkloric music and entertainment: Latin jazz, Spanish rock and the requisite mariachis will all be on  la mano.  Niños  can enjoy carnival games, rides and  piñata  breaking. Free educational and cultural workshops will be offered throughout the festival. But most importantly, the street vendors will be out in full force selling Mexican delights like stuffed chiles, tamales, taquitos, tacos and churros. Bring your appetite!  Fee: $50.00 Bus will pick up and drop off at MiraCosta College Oceanside campus, parking lot 1A only. Departure: 8:30 a.m. Return: 6 p.m.

General Information Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA)

Selective Service—Important Notice For Male Students

All student records of MiraCosta College are kept in accordance with the provisions of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act.

Federal law requires men 18 through 25 years of age to be registered with the Selective Service System (SSS). The law applies to male citizens and immigrant aliens, but not to foreign students who hold valid student visas. Registration forms are available at any U.S. Post Office or online at www.sss.gov.

A student may request access to those campus records which personally identify the student; the student may challenge the accuracy of the record or the appropriateness of its retention in the college records. Regardless of age, student consent is needed for the release of records covered by the act to outside parties except for those agencies entitled to access under the provisions of the act (e.g., college officials; other schools; federal, educational and auditing officers; and requestors in connection with the application or receipt of financial aid). These provisions apply to records received and used after November 19, 1974. Amendments to the act permit the college to release what is called “directory information,” provided that the student or former student has not specifically asked the college to refrain from releasing such information. Check with the Admissions and Records Office for specific directory information and notification of student rights. If you wish directory information not to be released without your prior written consent, please indicate on the college application or send a signed request to the Admissions and Records Office, Sta. 10A, MiraCosta College, 1 Barnard Drive, Oceanside CA 92056.

Federal Tax Credit In accordance with federal tax credit legislation, MiraCosta College will mail a verification 1098T form at the end of January to each registered student. Information will also be reported to the IRS. If you did not provide your correct Social Security number to the Admissions and Records Office, complete a change of information form to ensure accurate reporting to the IRS. Please check with your tax preparer to determine if you are eligible to take advantage of this credit and the amount you may deduct. 1098 information may be accessed on your SURF account by selecting Finances.

Smoking and Drug Use MiraCosta College allows smoking in designated smoking areas only and imposes sanctions against the use of illegal drugs. Designated smoking areas are clearly marked with signs posted at each campus; the campus maps in this schedule show where these areas are located.

Student Right-to-Know Rates In compliance with the Student-Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act of 1990 (Public Law 101542), it is the policy of the MiraCosta Community College District to make available its completion and transfer rates to all current and prospective students. Beginning in fall 2004, a cohort of all certificate-, degree-, and transferseeking first-time, full-time students were tracked over a three-year period. Their completion and transfer rates are listed below. These rates do not represent the success rates of the entire student population at MiraCosta College, nor do they account for student outcomes occurring after this three-year tracking period. Based upon the cohort defined above, 28.99 percent attained a certificate or degree or became “transfer prepared” during a three year period, from fall 2004 to spring 2007. Students who are “transfer prepared” have completed 56 transferable units with a GPA of 2.0 or better. Based on the cohort defined above, 23.19 percent transferred to another postsecondary institution (UC, CSU, or another California community college) prior to attaining a degree, certificate, or becoming “transfer-prepared” during a five-semester period, from spring 2005 to spring 2007.
