Posted on July 21st, 2014 | Leave a comment

Important student information below:


Priority Registration Information for Fall 2014



  • Only 30% of Palomar College students utilize their priority registration dates. Everyone at Palomar College has some sort of priority registration. Use your priority registration date for Fall 2014 to ensure your ideal class schedule. Check for your Fall 2014 enrollment date on your eServices “Welcome” tab beginning June 16th. Actual registration for Fall 2014 will begin July 2nd.
  • Tips to minimize registration / login problems:

1)     Make sure that any password issues have been resolved prior to your enrollment date and time. Contact the admissions office if you are having trouble accessing your online account.

2)     Make sure that all past due fees have been paid and any holds have been addressed to avoid delay in registration.

3)     The fall class schedule is available now online. You may begin planning your class schedule now so that you can enroll immediately on your date and time. Have a back-up plan in place in case your 1st choice class is full.



  • There will be a new priority enrollment system beginning Fall 2014, which rewards students who work toward their academic goals. New rules include:

o   Students in their final semester prior to graduation or transfer receive higher priority (1 time only) with a petition for early graduation submitted to the Evaluations Office or by meeting with a counselor in the Counseling Office.

o   Students may increase their priority by completing an assessment test and orientation and meeting with a counselor for an educational plan.

o   Students with over 90 degree applicable units will drop in priority.

o   Students who do not maintain a 2.0 GPA or complete less than 50% of their coursework will drop in priority.

o   Students may appeal with the admissions office for a reinstatement of priority registration with documented extenuating circumstances, or for those pursuing a high unit major.

  • Contact Palomar College Admissions for details (760) 744-1150 x 2164.
  • Don’t be late, register on your date!

American Indian Community Survey

Posted on December 4th, 2012 | Leave a comment


December, 2012

Dear Tribal Community Leaders,

We, at the American Indian Studies Department, are excited to share with you our tribal community survey, which we hope you will take a few minutes to complete. Your response(s) will be completely confidential and will not be analyzed on an individual basis. Enclosed is a hard copy for your individual use. This cannot be copied, unfortunately, due to the sensitivity of the machine that reads results at the college.

We are delivering surveys for you to share. Please consider including library patrons, parents, co-tribal employees, cultural committees, and any other interested community members.  If you have a public room or a library or children’s program, perhaps you could share survey forms in those places, along with a collection box and a note to encourage tribal members to complete the survey.

The survey is also accessible on-line with directions on how to open and submit the document. This is the link:

Collection of the hard copies and on-line forms will be around the first of the year, 2013.

Please contact the American Indian Studies Department (760-744-1150, ext. 2425) or Naida Garcia at the satellite center (760-742-1121) if you have any questions.
