Education Planning Checklist for New Students

April through August

Attend a group session with a counselor to help you select classes for Summer  or Fall 2021.  Call the Counseling front desk at (760) 891-7511 to sign up for one of the sessions. Keep in mind, registration for both summer and fall semester begins May 3 .

May through August

Registration begins on May 3. Go to MyPalomar to register for courses. Everyone is assigned a specific date and time when to register. You can register on or after your registration time up through the first week of the semester. Register early to get the classes you want.

Attend a registration workshop to get help registering for class. If you still need help selecting courses, then attend a course planning session first (step 1).

July through August

Conduct career exploration in the Summer to verify your career choice and make sure you have the appropriate major in our system. The Career Center will contact you. More details to come!

August

Get ready for the semester by logging into your courses in Canvas, checking your Palomar student email, and getting your textbooks. Attend a webinar or watch a recording on how to be prepared for the semester.

September

After the semester has begun, Counseling will contact you for a 1 on 1 appointment with a counselor if you attended a group session. Counseling will help you with additional resources and help you plan your classes for the long term.
