Miles Community College subscribes to the
philosophy of a comprehensive community college, including an
“open door” admissions policy designed to encourage all adults
to continue their education.
The commitment to an open door admissions policy is defined as
providing all eligible students with access to an appropriate
educational offering at the College. Anyone over the age of 18
is admitted to the College if they have a high school diploma,
GED, or satisfactory COMPASS scores; but the College reserves
the right to guide students into the courses and programs that
will enhance their opportunities for success.
Admission to the College does not necessarily imply eligibility
to enroll in a course with established prerequisites (See Course
Descriptions starting on page 84) or to enter a program that has
a limited number of spaces and minimum entrance requirements.
COMPASS and ACT/SAT test scores are used to help place students
in appropriate level courses.
