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 ACCUPLACER 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. ACCUPLACER and ACT/SAT test scores are used to help place students in appropriate level courses.
